Profiles of Faithfulness: Legacy Servants of The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary : Revised and Expanded Edition
Edited by Alex Sibley
Foreword by Adam W. Greenway
Delving into the history of The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary reveals a pattern of Gospel faithfulness that goes back through the generations of faculty, students, and administrators, all of them called and sustained by a great and faithful God. This volume profiles some of these individuals, exposing how God has used a myriad of men and women to impact the seminary and, by extension, the Kingdom of God. Originally published in 2019 with 16 profiles, the revised and expanded edition profiles an additional 22 “legacy servants.”
As the seminary’s ninth president Adam W. Greenway has said, today’s students and faculty are living in a house they did not build, drinking from a well they did not dig. This volume highlights some of the men and women who built the house and dug the well.
Many chapters are authored by current faculty members of Southwestern Seminary, often writing about predecessors in their academic disciplines, including Gregory A. Wills on Robert A. Baker, David S. Dockery on Curtis Vaughan, John D. Massey on Cal Guy, Ted J. Cabal on John P. Newport, Michael S. Wilder on Joe Davis Heacock, D. Jeffrey Bingham on Jesse J. Northcutt, and Joseph R. Crider on B. B. McKinney. Other writers include Southwestern Seminary news writing staff, with one chapter contributed by O.S. Hawkins, president of GuideStone Financial Resources. Alex Sibley, former managing editor of Seminary Hill Press and associate director of news and information at Southwestern Seminary, served as the volume’s editor. The book’s foreword was written by President Adam W. Greenway.
