Dr. Ron Nash

I just received this in my email:

Our friend and colleague, Professor Ronald Nash, is suddenly at the point of
death. I just talked to Betty Jane, his wife, at his bedside. He is expected
to live only another few hours. This comes as shocking news, but he had been
declining in recent days. He is now in a skilled nursing facility in the
Orlando area.

I know you will want to pray for Dr. Nash in these final hours, and for his wife
Betty Jane and the entire family. They are gathered there in Orlando together.
Pastor Bill Haynes, our trustee and the Nash's former pastor, is also there with

Betty Jane expressed her confidence that God has "a better plan" for Ron than
what they would have chosen, and she looked in hope to his relief from
suffering. I assured her of our love, concern, and prayers.

I had Dr. Nash for Intro to Philosophy my first full semester at Southern. His class had to be experienced -- listening doesn't do it justice. You can hear him at

2 Dr. Nash was a great gift to the church! How valiant for God's truth. I treasure his many books. I would urge seminarians and Christian Philosophy students to model their minds and ministries after his! In my last conversation with him over lunch in 2004 at the Zondervan Refreshment area (at CBA's summer event) we discussed the tragic consequences of the too eager welcome postmodernism is having in evangelical Christianity academic circles. I think he understood the problem correctly. I applaud his latest efforts in alerting the younger generation of the destructive elements it poses.

3 Does anyone know how to get in-touch with either of his children, Jeff or Jennifer? I grew-up with them in Kentucky, but haven't talked to them in years. He is already missed, Doug
