Gerald F. Hawthorne (1925-2010): author, Wheaton College professor

I was sorry to read about the death of Professor Hawthorne

The Following is from the Chicago Tribune

Gerald F. Hawthorne authored three books, co-edited three more and published more than three dozen articles and reviews on biblical Greek studies.

Yet his heart was in the classroom, where the Wheaton College professor of 42 years taught thousands of students that Greek was certainly hard, often fun, but at its core essential to the study of the New Testament.

Dr. Hawthorne, 84, who when he retired from Wheaton College in 1995 as professor emeritus of New Testament Greek studies received a long, thunderous standing ovation from the student body, died Wednesday, Aug. 4, in his home, after a battle with skin cancer.
