A 1,250-page systematic theology text is a living tribute to a 94-year-old professor and theologian with deep roots in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.
Systematic Theology: Biblical and Historical by Dr. Robert D. Culver is, in the view of reviewer Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., who wrote the foreword to the volume, “one of the strongest examples of the exegetical use of the Bible in forming a Systematic Theology for our day.”
The author, who lives in southeastern Minnesota and is still active in preaching, writing, and presenting papers at the Evangelical Theological Society, was originally from the Yakima, Wash., area. Recruited by Alva J. McClain to enroll at Ashland (Ohio) College, Culver was present at the legendary prayer meeting in J. C. Beal’s home where Grace College and Seminary–and by extension, the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches–were born in 1937.
After earning his theological degrees, including the Th.D., from Grace Theological Seminary, Culver went on to teach at Grace Seminary, Wheaton College and Graduate School, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and the Near-East School of Archaeology at Jerusalem.
