- I'm still a bit shaken but my condolences go to his family and his
scholarship will be missed.

Subject: [XTalk] Bob Schacht
Hi everyone (cross posted to crosstalk and gthomas):
I hate to begin your year with bad news, but I discovered last night that
our very own Bob Schacht has passed away. I do not know the precise details,
but my impression is that it was at home, and relatively sudden.
I think this is a great loss to all of us. Bob has been a HUGE on-line
presence since the very beginning of crosstalk -- which means some of us
have been talking to him about Christian origins for almost twenty years.
Always civil, clear, on point, and firm in his arguments, and indefatigable
in his commitment to conversation on these lists. I do not think I ever met
Bob face to face in all this time, so for me, at least, this has been a
relationship undertaken completely on-line, first via email lists, then
facebook as well. Yet I find myself feeling like Bob was a friend of
long-standing and substance, and I think my life, at least, is and will be
diminished by his absence.
best regards, all,
University of Regina
