I heard Stan Grenz died this morning. I am so sad.


i am stunned to silence and grief...my prayers go out to his wife and children...i am so shocked that i am out of words for this one...dr. grenz was a man whose love for God and his integrity for the ministry in and out of the classroom have inspired my own understanding of the church...

Stan's grace created room for the rest of us to breathe and to grow. He was much in demand, but he remained a gentle pietist, never a star. He treated even opponents with uncommon kindness and respect. The church will miss his public voice, because he was a brilliant theologian at the peak of his craft. Those of us who knew him as a friend will miss his wise counsel, his gentle presence, his vision, his encouragement, his silly jokes, and his love.

Please pray for Edna and the family. This is a very sad day.

Stanley J. Grenz passed away yesterday morning (Saturday, March 12), twenty-four hours after suffering a massive brain hemorrhage. The memorial service will most likely be Friday afternoon at Stan's church, First Baptist Church, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada but that is still to be determined.

I’m sure information will be available Monday, if not sooner, on the following websites. Nothing is posted on them yet except a short statement on Stan's own site.

Please do pray for Edna and family in their time of grief and loss. All who knew him were enriched by his scholarship, wisdom, graciousness, humility, and service. He will be deeply missed, remembered fondly, and the legacy of his work will continue to edify the church of Jesus Christ.

My deepest condolences to Dr. Grenz' students and family. He will be genuinely missed, even by those of us who only knew him through his books.

The memorial service for Stan will be at First Baptist Church Vancouver (info@firstbc.org) on Sunday, 20 March at 230 pm. Words can't describe the shock and loss. We expected that he had more to contribute, but his impact will live on.
