Dr. Robert E. Webber: 1933-2007

I recently received word that a profound teacher and mentor of mine, Dr. Robert E. Webber, passed away Friday night, April 26, at 6:10 PM. Bob had been fighting pancreatic cancer for 8 months.

Bob was a theology professor of mine at Wheaton College and then was a chief influencer in my decision to attend Northern Seminary, where he began a program on Worship and Spirituality.

Bob was well-known for his works on worship and more popularly for his fairly recent book, The Younger Evangelicals.

I’ll write more about him later – his influence and thought, but, for those who know him, I thought I’d post this news right away.

  1. It saddens me greatly to hear about Dr. Webber’s passing. He also was a professor of mine at Wheaton College when I attended graduate school there… I had the pleasure of taking two classes with him. He was an extraordinary professor and human being. He defined “make a joyful noise” with his teaching style. I’m certain he will be missed by all who knew him.
