Dr. Paul Hiebert

Alan Hirsch lets us know that
The Rev. Dr. Paul G. Hiebert, missiologist and missionary to India, has died of cancer on March 11, 2007 at the age of 74. After six years of service as a missionary under the Mennonite Brethren Board of Missions, Hiebert earned a doctoral degree in cultural anthropology, and taught for some years in secular universities. Subsequently, he taught missions and anthropology at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California (1977-1990) and at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Highland Park, Illinois (1990-2007).
Matt Stone has a list of Dr. Hiebert's books and articles as part of his tribute. His articles and books are well worth reading as tools for understanding culture and the gospel. He was one of those men who walked with God and was intent on being missional. He will be missed.
