By the Regent Office of Public Relations
A special web site honoring Dr. Charles L. Holman, a founding professor in Regent University’s School of Divinity, is now online. Holman passed away Jan. 18, 2006, of cancer at age 70. Holman served as a Professor of Biblical Interpretation and New Testament.
The site includes special tributes from Holman’s colleagues, students, and friends, who honor him for the many ways he influenced them through his model of godly character, integrity, sincerity, and prayer. Also included is a biography, a downloadable memorial service, information on the Charles L. Holman Scholarship fund, and Holman’s personal Web site. Dr. Vinson Synan, former dean of the School of Divinity, said on the site, “Dr. Holman was the quintessential professor with a passion for teaching and for upholding the highest academic standards. … Above all, Charles Holman was a man of utter sincerity and transparency. He set a high standard of Christian character and love for the Bible that will inspire both faculty and students for generations to come."
In 1982, Holman was one of the founding professors of the School of Biblical Studies, which was later renamed as the School of Divinity. Holman was recognized as Divinity Professor of the Year, 1996-1997, and Outstanding Teacher of the Year at Regent in 2003. Holman was also the Chair of the Curriculum Committee for the School of Divinity and instrumental in the school attaining accreditaions from both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). Donations may be made online to contribute to the establishment of a scholarship in Dr. Holman's honor.
