Derek Kidner has gone to be with the Lord

Derek Kidner, an ordained Priest in the Anglican church and the former Warden of the Tyndale House, was called to glory last week. Justin Taylor reports that the memorial service was held this past Friday. You can also see a list of Kidner's other positions there.

Personally I am in the course of writing a paper on Proverbs 3:1-12 for a class on the Old Testament Wisdom Literature. Kidner's commentary on Proverbs is a great resource and for the price it is a fantastic work for you to pick up. His commentaries on the Psalms are similarly valuable. Please take a moment today to thank God for how he has blessed the church through this teacher and writer and to pray for Derek Kidner's family as they wait to join him in glory.

For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.
“O death, where is your victory?
"O death, where is your sting?”

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor. 15:53-57)
