Dr. Dan’s Archives – February 2008

February 28, 2008. This is a one of the near-monthly letters Dr. Lockwood sends to donors and alumni. See more archives here.

Throughout my twenty-eight years at Multnomah, one thing always inspires wonder: that the Word of God—living, active, sharper than a double-edged sword—shapes and sharpens lives in miraculous ways.

Just Ask Bruce

In fact, that is why students enroll here. Just ask Bruce, one of my students in Grad Theology. Retired, an empty nester, and a committed churchman, Bruce, along with his wife Cathy, travelled to Multnomah from Paradise, California. “For years, I’ve known Multnomah’s reputation for teaching the Bible,” Bruce says to me, “and that is why I’m here.”

Bruce is a man of deep, genuine faith who served in his local church in many ways. But, approaching sixty years of age, Bruce discovered something was missing. “In a nutshell,” he admits, “I realized I was biblically illiterate! Sure, I knew enough of the basic doctrines of the Bible to function, but I hungered to know the deeper things of the Word, to wrestle with the great issues of the faith, and to forge my own positions as a result of personal study.”

Into Leadership With No Training

Perhaps what alarmed Bruce most was that he—and scores of others like him—are thrust into positions of leadership without really understanding the fundamental things of God. So, he seized the opportunity to study at Multnomah to fill this spiritual void. “For years, I’ve been told what to believe,” he remembers. “Now, for the first time, I am beginning to discover what I really believe and why.”

By his own admission, Bruce, in the first year of a two-year MAPS program, will never be the same. And it is Multnomah’s unique blend of biblical knowledge applied to the spiritual issues of life that drives this. “Multnomah’s professors push me to ask the tough spiritual questions,” Bruce explains, “like ‘What is the condition of your soul?’ For decades, I have longed for this direction!”

There is nothing more exciting—and rewarding—that this: to see how the Word of God transforms minds and hearts of men and women who will, in turn, change the world.

Rejoicing in life-change,

Daniel R. Lockwood
