R. T. France – 1938 – 2012 and John Hick – 1922 – 2012

New Testament scholar and Anglican cleric R. T. France passed away this past Saturday (Feb 10th). France was the author of such works as The Gospel of Matthew in the New International Commentary on the New Testament series, The Gospel of Mark in the New International Greek Commentary series, Matthew: Evangelist and Teacher and many more. Over the years I have come to enjoy and trust his work. He will be sorely missed.

Also, philosopher John Hick died on Thursday, Feb 9th. Hick was a notable philosopher of religion and the author of Faith and Knowledge, The Metaphor of God Incarnate and many more. You can find his website here. Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig earned his Ph.D. in philosophy under Hick while he was at the University of Birmingham in England.

Our prayers will be with both these families.
