Serving God’s Community
Studies in Honor of W. Ward Gasque

Edited by Susan S. Phillips & Soo-Inn Tan

“Trained as a New Testament scholar and blessed with a pastoral heart, Dr Gasque’s guiding passion has been the theological education of the laity. He has pursued this passion through strengthening schools, and through encouraging many students who have had the privilege to be taught and guided by him, as well as by his wife and partner in ministry, Laurel Gasque. Dr Gasque’s legacy is substantial and varied, but his main legacy will be the many men and women from around the world he helped to fulfill their potential in Christ.

“This Festschrift is presented to Dr Gasque on the occasion of his 75th birthday, to honor him for his contribution to the cause of Christ, and with the hope that the things he has been committed to—biblical scholarship, leadership development, and the equipping of the laity—will continue to receive fresh exposure and momentum.”

—Susan S. Phillips & Soo-Inn Tan
