Richard Land: A Personal Tribute to Dr. Norman Geisler

As I was processing the fact of Dr. Geisler’s homegoing to be with Jesus for eternity, a flood of memories flashed across my mind.

I had known about Norm since I was a seminary student in the early 1970s. Along with my fellow conservative classmates, we eagerly awaited Dr. Geisler’s latest article, tape, or book defending the historic Christian faith in powerful, articulate, and exhilarating ways. For us, Dr. Geisler’s latest defense of the faith was like a long drink of cold water in the midst of what was too often an arid and sterile theological landscape.

Dr. Geisler has been the “go to” authority for more than two generations of evangelical seminary students who were looking for a bold, erudite, and uncompromisingly faithful defense of the inerrant, infallible Word of God and the historical doctrines of the Christian faith. His ministry was invaluable, and his influence incalculable.

I first met Dr. Geisler personally while he was a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary and I was a Dean and professor at Criswell College in the same city. At that time (ca. 1977) he was the guiding force behind what became the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy and its strategic and invaluable defense of Holy Scripture.
