Dr. Lindsey possessed that quality in an individual which is difficult to find in the church today. His was a rare combination of heart and mind, faith and critical thinking. In Lindsey one could see this unique blend, both in his ministry and in his scholarship.
A couple of years ago I visited Dr. Lindsey and his wife, Margaret. I shared with them about my work. When I mentioned to him, “The Jesus who comes through as a result of your approach to the Gospels is a powerful figure who changes people’s lives,” his eyes lit up.
Following the death of Robert L. Lindsey on May 31, 1995, Jerusalem Perspective magazine published a memorial issue (October-December 1995, No. 49). Included in that issue were eight tributes to Lindsey written by his colleagues and students, including that of Steven Notley above.
