Dr. Fink truly helped me understand how to study and teach God's Word to others. Impacted my life and others in a way that cannot be fully measured! His presence will be sorely missed here but one of God's champions is finally home.
Along with so many others writing in this guest book, I, too, remember being in Dr. Fink's Inductive Bible Study class, but I also know him from the halls of the School of Religion when I worked there part time as a student/secretary in the early 80's.
Both Dr. & Mrs. Fink are people I can mark in my life as those who have encouraged me in my walk with the Lord. Every Christmas we have looked forward to receiving their family updates, and, of course, who can forget the "Wizard of Id" cartoons posted on his office door that originally said "The King is a fink!" and which he changed to "The Fink is a KING!"
He was a prince among men and in my heart I knew that he not only loved the Lord deeply, he deeply loved serving Him. I can imagine him exhorting each one of us to live out II Tim. 1:13,14 as he now looks into the eyes of his Savior and Lord and knows it was all well worth it. With great fondness of memory, Deb Gatz (LU class 1983)
So sad to hear this news but so glad for Dr. Fink as he's finally with his Savior! He was my favorite teacher at LU and I was so thankful for his classes and interest in my life. I serve in ministry with Word of Life in the States and also in Korea and he would practice his Korean on me. :) He was a great man and I'll be praying for his family during this time. Blessings,
It was 1958 when we met Paul & Mary Lou Fink in Winona Lake, IN, as part of the Grace College faculty. That was 55 years ago. A most outstanding memory was when they came to the hospital to visit our new baby girl, and brought with them a huge number of baby outfits - enough to clothe her for 2 years.
In 1979 both the Finks and Garlocks arrived at Liberty University to be part of the faculty. Here we taught together and our friendship has continued over these 55 years.
Our love and prayers are with all the family as they go through these difficult days. What a comfort to know that Paul is "Safe In the Arms of Jesus" and that we will see him again in Heaven someday.

Dr. Fink was such a great man. He inspired me to press on when things became difficult. The skills he taught me in Inductive Bible Study continue to serve the body well. I pray for peace and comfort for his family.
