One of the privileges that I have every Sunday is to fellowship with Dr. James Leo Garrett. Dr. Garrett is Distinguished Professor of Theology Emeritus at Southwestern Seminary. When I first preached at Meadowridge, Dr. Garrett came to me with very encouraging words, and he and his wife Myrta invited my family out to lunch with them and a few of their senior adult friends from the church. We had a wonderful time, and I will never forget Dr. Garrett’s words to me that Sunday.
Dr. Garrett’s life study has now been published. It is entitled, Baptist Theology: A Four Century Study. He was also recently interviewed by the folks at Founders Ministries. I pray that God will continue to bless my family and so many others through his writing and kindness.
