I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family of Dr. William J. Larkin, a former seminary professor of mine. I have recently completed a series of posts addressing the IVP New Testament Commentary on Acts by Dr. Larkin.
This morning I went to the dentist, and while seated in the waiting room I fished Saturday’s newspaper out of the waste basket. As I thumbed through, Dr. Larkin’s picture surprised me. Then I realized it was his obituary, having recently died as a result of pancreatic cancer.
My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and the CIU family in this time of loss. I stand by the critiques I have written, but also recognize the tenderness of the hour. My apologies with the imperfect timing.
