In his 35 years at FPU, Edmund Janzen served with distinction and passion. Steeped in knowledge of the Scriptures, he was also full of ideas on and stories about applying its eternal truth in everyday ways. Students knew Janzen as a teacher who cared not only about the content of his courses, but also the course of their lives. Those who took Janzen up on his frequent invitations for informal discussions received thoughtful counsel on both the biblical text and the Christian life.
