DALLAS (BP)—When author and longtime Dallas Theological Seminary professor Howard Hendricks passed away Wednesday (Feb. 20) at the age of 88, Southern Baptist leaders, seminary professors and pastors took to Twitter to honor his life.
Hendricks served on the DTS faculty for 60 years and was founder and chairman of the seminary’s Center for Christian Leadership. He authored or co-authored 16 books and taught more than 10,000 students. He even was chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys football team from 1976-1984.
Students and friends knew him simply as “Prof.” He preached on the campuses of Southern Baptist seminaries and at the 2003 SBC Pastors Conference.
Hendricks spoke at the Billy Graham conference center and at Promise Keepers rallies, and would tell those in attendance, “It’s wonderful to be here with you, but I have a group of delicious students waiting for me back at the seminary.”
Many of Hendricks’ students went on to become even more well-known than he was. Among them: Tony Evans, David Jeremiah, Robert Jeffress, Erwin Lutzer and Chuck Swindoll.
Swindoll, who later became president and then chancellor of DTS, said Hendricks “is the one man who has had the greatest impact on my entire life. And there is no doubt in my mind that since the late 1950s to the present day, no other teacher at DTS has been more influential to more of our graduates, or more magnetic to more potential students than Dr. Hendricks.”
Hendricks’ funeral was March 2 in Frisco, Texas.
