Media_httpjasonclarkw_gdgni

I was saddened to hear over the weekend that Rober Webber has died, and pay tribute to his life, and ministry, celebrating his passing into eternity with Jesus. I have read and own several of Robert Webbers books, that have been hugley influential in my christian formation. I was fortunate to hear him in person in April 2005, at Asbury, Kentucky, USA. Maybe you'd like to leave a comment in tribute to the life and ministry of this wonderful servant.

Robert Webber was the Myers Professor of Ministry at Northern Seminary in Lombard, Illinois; president of the Institute for Worship Studies and professor of theology emeritus at Wheaton College. He is the author of more than forty books including the Ancient-Future Faith series published by Baker Books.

Thine is the Glory Thine is the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son; Endless is the victory, Thou o’er death hast won; Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away, Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay. Thine is the glory, risen conqu’ring Son, Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won. Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb; Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom; Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing; For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting. No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life; Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife; Make us more than conqu’rors, through Thy deathless love: Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above. Thine is the glory, risen conqu’ring Son, Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.
