LaBarbera Echoes Dr. Dobson’s Fond Remembrance of
D. James Kennedy

Dobson calls late pastor “a giant in the battle to restore traditional values in our nation”

djameskennedy.jpg  We certainly echo the statement of Dr. Dobson below. Dr. Kennedy’s worldly detractors — focused as they are on politics — most likely are unfamiliar with his true passion of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through his entrepreneurial genius — and programs like Evangelism Explosion — he made it easier for millions of believers to share the truth of God’s gracious way to heaven, where Dr. Kennedy surely is today. — Peter LaBarbera

Dr. Dobson Remembers D. James Kennedy

Calls late pastor “a giant in the battle to restore traditional values in our nation”


September 5, 2007

Colorado Springs, Colo. — Focus on the Family founder and Chairman James C. Dobson, Ph.D., issued the following statement today upon learning of the death of Dr. D. James Kennedy:

“The Church has lost one of its truly significant figures, and American families have lost one of their most passionate, effective defenders. For decades, Dr. Kennedy has been a passionate defender of biblical truth in a culture that increasingly forgot it. He was a giant in the battle to restore traditional values in our nation.

“Most importantly, I believe, Dr. Kennedy would want to be remembered as a man whose greatest desire was to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Believers around the world are indebted to him for holding firm to that important calling.”
