Warren Wiersbe, ‘the pastor’s pastor,’ dies at 89
A biblical scholar often quoted by Evangelical pastors and teachers has died, according to his family. Warren Wiersbe passed away on Thursday, May 2. He was 89.

Wiersbe wrote more than 150 books dating back to the 1950s. He was referred to as “the pastor’s pastor” because his Bible commentaries and study aides were used so widely around the world. His books were translated into dozens of languages.

Following his work at Youth for Christ, Wiersbe served at Calvary Baptist Church in Covington, Kentucky, from 1961 until 1971. In addition to pastoring, he worked as a seminary professor, radio Bible teacher, and writer. More than 4,000,000 copies of his books have been sold. ...

"Hi Christopher,
I nearly forgot to mention that this morning I listened to Warren Wiersbe preaching. His friends have put 22 of his messages on SermonAudio, and I listened to one of them and was blessed. He has a very pleasant way of preaching, most gracious. Even when talking about the sad state of the church he managed to do that with grace. All in all, I would say that he was filled with the Spirit, anointed of God."

Thanks John, and yes, he was a kind, and humble, servant of God, filled with The Spirit, and who has gone home. Thanks for the info on the sermons...I sent my Aunt the link who will really appreciate them, and I'm going to listen to some myself. A powerful preacher, yet soft spoken...sounds almost like an oxymoron.

God bless Dr.Wiersbe. I can remember on cold winter nights hearing his Moody auditorium radio sermons. His kind, patient voice eased my soul. Years later, I bought a hard back set of the “ Be” series to help me with teaching Sunday school. Oh, how I pray the Lord will raise another Warren for my grandchildren’s generation.
Soon we will all pass , how I pray my adult children and grandchildren could be in the presence of the King.
Interestingly, Dr. Wiersbe had a study bible recently released by Thomas Nelson in the NKJV. Time moves closer to His return or our homecoming.

Thanks Christopher for sharing some more about it. It's hard to imagine, such a place right in the heart of Chicago, but I'm guessing that the students had plenty of training on their own doorstep, without needing to go very far before finding plenty of people to talk to about the Lord and give out tracts, preach the gospel etc.

Hello Dolores, amen and yes indeed, it is a most heart-warming thing, this so great salvation which our Lord has bestowed upon us, that we should be justified for ever, and that God sees us without sin and with the perfection of his Son clothing us. It is really most wonderful, and shows the kindness and love of God, seeing as he knew we would go wrong if left to ourselves, so sent his Son to die in our place and arise again (praise God!) to be a living Saviour for sinners like us who gladly receive him and take the free gift of eternal life offered to us in the gospel. Glory to the Lord, and praise him for evermore, enter his courts with praise, and let us exalt his name together, for he is worthy, he is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Hallelujah!

You are so right about both preachers, Christopher, so interesting that you were raised under Warren W. preaching. Read his books, wonderful men of God, Irwin L as well! Thanks for sharing that, very encouraging.
Hello, John Lee,I agree with justification being a one time incident. I remember someone explaining to me, that it means in simple terms, just as if I had never sinned. We were given Jesus’s Righteousness at the new Birth. We had none at all. Good lessons.

Hey John, I don't really remember the history of it all. I've been to the library many times though, and used to look forward to looking around the shop they have within it, a little Christian bookstore, type of place, and would buy bookmarks with passages of scripture on them, and keyrings, etc. Moody Bible church is one big place inside, that's for sure. Being dragged there every week, going to AWANA, one of my Aunts, and one of my foster familys, were the catalysts, and what God placed in my path to introduce Himself to me. Had none of those been a part of my early life, I'm not sure where I'd be today, spiritually, or if I'd still be around at all. I was, and am, the lowest of the low; undeserving, and unworthy, so when I see the horrors that mankind is capable of, and the crimes being committed against God, on any level, I never think to myself, "Look at those dirty sinners...death to them all!" No, I feel sad for them, and knowing that I could still be one of them, thank God often for showing me a much better way, and pulling me out from amongst the blindness and chaos.

Sorry John, I've always just said, "Moody", when referring to the church itself, so I was talking about the church, and not the Bible institute. Moody (the church), and Moody Bible, are located on the same campus on N LaSalle in Chicago. Warren Wiersby was the Pastor of Moody church, and Moody church would have been where those attending Moody Bible Institute would have gone for Sunday, etc., services. The college itself didn't have its own church, or a seperate church...Moody Bible church was it, but located on the same campus.
Hi Christopher and thanks for that. I looked on Google map and found it just where you said. It seems there is a big Bible Institute, and next door there is a Bible Institute Library, and next door to that, Moody Radio. I take it that all these were begun by D. L. Moody, therefore I figured the Moody church would have also been set up by Moody himself.

I'm especially fascinated because I recently watched a documentary film concerning the life of George Verwer (former head of O.M.), and I saw inside the Institute, where he filmed, as he used to attend there.

And if Warren Wiersbe was pastor of "Moody" does that mean the college had its own congregation which worked as a local church, within the college? And that people from outside the college could attend it? Thanks."

Warren Wiersby was the Pastor at Moody when I was a kid. My Aunt was a student at Moody Bible at the time, and a member of Moody, so that meant I was dragged to church every single week, I remember how, even as a kid, he captured my attention; having a way about him as a teacher. I also remember how impatient I'd get following each service, because my Aunt and him were friendly, so there was almost always a conversation after, when I just wanted to leave at that point. (I was a young kid-pre-teen). Irwin Lutzer stepped in when Warren retired, and I remember him being just as powerful, and down to Earth in his preaching, and personal conversations. Funny thing is that I still remember their voices after all of these years. Warren was a nice man, and a powerful preacher, even though he was soft spoken...he's finally gone home.

[Paul’s theme in the second section of his letter was salvation – righteousness declared. He proved that all people are sinners; so his next goal was to explain how sinners can be saved. The theological term for this salvation is justification by faith. Justification is the act of God whereby He declares the believing sinner righteous in Christ on the basis of the finished work of Christ on the cross. Each part of this definition is important, so we must consider it carefully.]

[To begin with, justification is an act, not a process. There are no degrees of justification; each believer has the same right standing before God. Also, justification is something God does, not man. No sinner can justify himself before God. Most important, justification does not mean that God makes us righteous, but that He declares us righteous. Justification is a legal matter. God puts the righteousness of Christ on our record in the place of our own sinfulness. And nobody can change this record.]

Anyone who believes this and has experienced it is a saved man/woman/child. And Warren carries on with what sanctification means. Great stuff!
