On Saturday Liberty University announced the death of 77-year-old Ed Hinson, who served the university for 48 years.
Hindson started teaching at Liberty in 1974 and died as Dean Emeritus at the John W Rawlings School of Divinity and a Distinguished Professor of Religion.
The biblical scholar and professor played a role in the lives of the students he taught and the leadership at Liberty University.
“Liberty University would not be recognizable without the myriad contributions of Dr. Ed Hindson. The impact of his life and ministry will live on through the millions of lives he touched. He was a member of our founding generation, an academic cornerstone of our institution, and a friend and mentor to scores of leaders. He is irreplaceable, and we celebrate his homecoming with immense gratitude: well done good and faithful servant.
