Along with his scholarship, he was the consummate gentlemen, had a demeanor of graciousness and dignity that served well the office of President and hence the School. I learned much from his example.”
Dr. Michael L. Sweeney:
“In a letter Fred Thompson sent to me a couple of years ago, he stated that the only text that is needed in the school of Jesus Christ is John 14:6, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by me.’ Fred believed that our main occupation was to explain that text through our lives. To Fred, scholarship was a form of worship.”
