Foreword. In Appreciation of Thomas R. Schreiner

by R. Albert Mohler Jr.

Where the Christian church is found faithful, faithful teachers are found. In the Old Testament, priests were honored for faithful instruction. In the New Testament, the most important office in the church is the teaching office. As Paul instructed Timothy, “what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2 ESV).

Where Professor Tom Schreiner is found, faithful teaching is found. One of the greatest privileges of my life is to teach and serve among some of the leading Christian scholars of our day, and Tom Schreiner is in the highest rank among them. He is the very model of a Christian teacher and scholar.

Tom became a Christian at age seventeen, partly through the witness of the woman who would become his wife, Diane. He received a call to ministry soon thereafter, and he has been engaged in answering that call for his entire adult life. His educational ambitions took him to Western Oregon University for his undergraduate work, then on to Western Conservative Baptist Seminary for his master of divinity and master of theology. He would receive his doctor of philosophy from Fuller Theological Seminary. Like his education, Tom’s first academic post was in the west, at Azusa Pacific University.

Later he would teach New Testament at Bethel Theological Seminary before joining the faculty of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1997, where he has now taught for more than twenty years.

At the same time, Tom has been deeply involved in the preaching ministry of the local church, serving as elder in three churches over the same span that took him to three academic postings. For most of those years, Tom’s academic context was the theological seminary, explicitly committed to the teaching of preachers and pastors.

There is only one excuse for a preacher to teach in a theological seminary and to devote his life and energies to theological education. It all comes down to the fact that God invests unique gifts of intellect and scholarly vocation in some ministers of the gospel. God then grants these men the stewardship of scholarship in order that future generations of Christians will be more faithfully taught by their preachers. That calling has defined Tom Schreiner’s life, and Tom defines that calling in our times.

The ideal of the Christian scholar reaches back to the apostles themselves and continues through towering figures such as Jerome and Augustine in the church’s early centuries. Those two massive models of Christian scholarship have nourished the church for more than a millennium. Both were exegetes of Holy Scripture. Both were models of devotional dedication to the church. Both have exerted an influence that continues to this day.

The same is true of Martin Luther and John Calvin, the most significant among the Reformers of the sixteenth century. In The Christian Scholar in the Age of the Reformation, E. Harris Harbison would remark: “The truest way, then, to describe the meaning of the Reformation, is to say it originated in a scholar’s insight, born equally of spiritual struggle and hard intellectual labor.”

Luther and Calvin loom large as we think of the Christian scholar in the service of the church. Both were master exegetes. One of Martin Luther’s greatest achievements would be his translation of the New Testament into German. The expositional sermons and commentaries of both Calvin and Luther remain in print today, readily available in good English translations. Why? The answer can only be that the power of their scholarship and preaching continues to nourish the church five centuries after the start of the Reformation—in scholarship, teaching, and preaching.

Tom Schreiner is the living refutation of any claim that the highest level of Christian scholarship cannot be accomplished while deeply involved in the life and ministry of the local church. Tom has authored at least fifteen major books and dozens of academic articles, each a work of scholarship. His New Testament Theology and Romans, his commentary in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, are representative of the gift of scholarship that Tom has given to the church.

Tom’s scholarship is confessional. He teaches within a confessional school and he is clear about his personal convictions. Like Luther and Calvin, Tom Schreiner is committed to the theology of the Reformation. Of course, he would prefer to say that he is first committed to the theology of the New Testament, and rightly so. He is a Baptist, an evangelical, a Protestant, and a model of Reformed scholarship and teaching. He is not a controversialist, but he does not run from controversy when the issues at stake are important.

The respect of his academic peers was evident when he was elected to serve as president of the Evangelical Theological Society in 2014. His investment in other scholars is extensive. His doctoral students now serve throughout the world of theological education. He is, in effect, a teaching legend in his own time.

One of the highest compliments students pay to teachers is to talk about them—with respect and affection. Students talk about Tom Schreiner that way all the time. They leave his classroom and talk about the lecture and discussion. They pick up on his language and his verbal cues. They love his humor and his eagerness to teach. They know the personal respect for students that Tom brings to every classroom. They return that respect by their acknowledgement that when in Tom’s classroom, they are in the presence of a master teacher.

I came to The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as president in 1993—twenty-five years ago as I write this. I was assigned a monumental challenge. My charge was to return Southern Seminary to its confessional identity. My ambition was even more monumental. With all my heart, I wanted to build Southern Seminary into the most faithful theological seminary that could serve the church. I needed professors who would share that same challenge and stewardship and would see such a mission as a grand adventure. I needed scholars of the top rank, and I needed them quickly.

Early in that effort, I knew that my hope was for Tom Schreiner to teach at Southern Seminary. In 1997, that hope was realized. For that fact, I am more thankful than I know how to express. Tom and many colleagues came and joined in this great effort, which God has tremendously blessed.

As I grow older, my appreciation and love for these colleagues grows only stronger and richer. Over the decades, you get to know each other deeply. I have seen Tom as a husband, tenaciously loving his cherished wife Diane and showing that love in the aftermath of a horrible accident. I have seen Diane show her abiding and cheerful love for her husband. I am so thankful to see them now, both healthy and loving life as grandparents.

I have seen Tom as father, and I have seen his love for Daniel, Patrick, John, and Anna—and I have seen his pride in them, their spouses, their callings, and their children.

I have seen Tom as colleague, caring deeply for those with whom he shares this great calling.

I often think and speak of Augustine’s argument that the Christian teacher must be driven by three loves—love of God, love of truth, and love of students. Tom Schreiner is a living example of those three loves. Thus, he is a living example of the Christian teacher and scholar at work. I am highly honored to write this foreword to a book that honors this teacher and that high calling.

“Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching.

Persist in this, for by so doing you will save

both yourself and your hearers.”

1 Timothy 4:16 (ESV)
