Whitworth Theology Department Annual Newsletter 2017

Dale Bruner (1975-1997), Professor Emeritus of Theology

Our good son, Michael Mears Bruner, is now teaching the Adult Sunday School Class, "Breaking News," at First Presbyterian Church Hollywood. I retired after exactly 20 years of teaching the same class, which we called "The Good News Class" and which began right after my Whitworth retirement in 1997. Michael and I are beginning a collaborative New Testament translation and commentary, volume 1 of which is tentatively entitled "The Four Gospels: A Running Commentary." I'd like to live long enough to do a second volume, "The Fifth Gospel: The Letters of Paul." Fun! Michael's book on Flannery O'Connor is being published this year by Intervarsity Press. Our older son Fred, with his wife, Signe, and two children, has just retired after decades of serving the CIA in southeastern Asia. We're all deeply grateful for all of our Whitworth friends and memories! And like all of you, we're praying for Roger Mohrlang's precious Dottie. Blessings, dear friends!

Dale, with Kathy
