One year ago: Ray S. Anderson

Anderson Ray S. Anderson displayed "a depth of insight and an almost joyful playfulness for the ministry of theology," wrote Christian D. Kettler of Friends University in Kansas shortly after the longtime Fuller Theological Seminary professor and prolific author died a year ago today.

Anderson, who was 83, taught theology and ministry for more than 30 years at Fuller in Pasadena, directing courses on influential theologians Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Anderson was 31 when he arrived at Fuller and received his divinity degree in 1959. He had worked on a farm for several years after serving in the Army Air Forces during World War II and earning a bachelor's degree from South Dakota State.
