A good theologian does not make his students dependent upon himself but equips them rather with the best he can give as a teacher, pastor (Seelsorger), and brother, thus setting them free by opening for them the treasures of the divine Scriptures, the ecclesial Confessions, and the history of theology. In this way, he enables his students ever to participate in the ongoing theological conversation in the true Church Catholic, at those places where God the Creator puts them and God the Sanctifier calls them. John Pless is an excellent example of such a theologian. And this volume, put together by many of his students, is another piece of evidence for the blessings of a faithful theological education.
The research that results from such education and its practical relevance for the church is displayed here in manifold variety. Such research includes not only faithfulness to the Lord Jesus Christ who binds His church to the Scriptures and through His Spirit brings about our confessional response, but also the intellectual rigor of a baptized mind, which is necessary in order to engage in critical communication with the world to which the gospel is to be proclaimed.
