Concordia University Magazine recently published an article about Rod Rosenbladt's huge influence upon the current Concordia faculty. After calling our dear friend, colleague, and mentor, Dr. Rod Rosenbladt, the "magnificent Dane," Mike Horton (on the White Horse Inn blog) says the following of Rod . . .
Way back when, Kim Riddlebarger introduced me to Rod Rosenbladt, one of his professors at Simon Greenleaf School of Law. Twenty-five years later, here we are still doing “theology on tap” together at the White Horse Inn. I can’t calculate the gifts that God has given me through the magnificent Dane over these many years. For his insights, challenges, conviction—and most of all, his friendship in the gospel, I’m greatly in Rod’s debt and I know that Kim and Ken feel that way as well. We’re delighted that Concordia Today Magazine has published a tribute to Rod’s work in its latest issue.
Rod is truly a great man, a dear friend, and if you know him, you know that he has trained a whole generation of scholars to defend the Christian faith and Lutheran orthodoxy. It is wonderful to see so many of his former students--now fellow faculty members with Ph.D.s--standing behind him. A great legacy indeed!
But he'll always be "Dad" Rod to me. I recount a bit about Rod's tremendous influence on my life Here.
Congrats Rod! Well deserved!
