A Tribute to Dr. Stuart Hackett (2012)


Dr. Stuart Hackett, long-time professor of philosophy at Wheaton College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School just went to be with the Lord.  He was one of the greatest Christian philosophers of the 20th century.  I was influenced by his book, The Resurrection of Theism, which we used as a text at Wheaton College in 1958.  Later, it was my privilege to hire Dr. Hackett to replace me in the philosophy department at Trinity when I was called to Dallas Theological Seminary.  His spiritual and intellectual discipline was exemplar.  His logical mind and analysis of the problems were among the greatest it was my privilege to know.  His influence lives on through his books, student, and one of his greatest disciples, Dr. William Lane Craig.
