Remembering Dave and Ruth Hunt

      Dave and Ruth Hunt are a great loss to this world. I believe Dave was the greatest Christian Bible scholar who influenced the culture for Christ in the past 50 years. They were people of rare integrity, truth and character. I sorely miss them. It's a great comfort to know that I will see them shortly. They are Heaven's gain. CMR.

Dear Carole,

It's difficult to put into words the love and admiration that we at TBC have for Ruth Hunt, Dave's wife of more than 60 years. She had grace and strength of character seldom seen these days. Ruth understood what it meant to be the help "meet" (or suitable) for her husband (Genesis:2:18) and was often invited to speak to women's groups on being a godly woman.  

Ruth was not only a woman who knew what that meant, but she lived it every day. Her love and admiration for Dave were obvious to all, and yet she had her own mind and her own strengths that went far beyond her wifely characteristics. Ruth was a very gifted writer herself, and this talent contributed to her ability to help Dave with the editing and polishing of many of his books. Dave always said, "Ruth is my firsteditor!"  
She was also a generous helper to women everywhere and made lasting friendships wherever her travels took her. She had the ability to see beneath the surface and thus was an excellent one to turn to for advice on practically any matter. So discerning was she that one would never want to try to put something past her. She would have seen through it in a moment!

We at The Berean Call wanted to express our own memories of Ruth in a personal way. Click here to read comments by staff members on why we will miss this amazing, gifted woman who was our dear friend.
