My favorite memory of Dr. Fink was his response to the question "How long does our paper need to be?" He said our papers should be like a girl's skirt...long enough to cover the subject and short enough to keep it interesting. :)
Paul Fink was a great inspiration to me when I taught at Grace College. I will remember him fondly and pray for the rest of his family on his homecoming. Rest peacefully in God's presence as you have now finished your labors, and you have certainly heard, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." Bob Arend
I was so blessed to have Dr. Fink as a teacher! The impact he has made for God's kingdom cannot be overstated. He was a faithful, loving man of God who loved us enough as students to challenge us and share with us his love for God's Word. I look forward to seeing him again in heaven.
Anything that I have been taught, trained in, and built upon was from what Dr. Fink taught me in homiletics. There was no other man that God put in my way to divide and teach the word of God that had a greater impact than Him.
Dr. Fink was THE most influential professor I had at Liberty University. My one class with him was worth 4 years of tuition. He gave me my foundation to be a seminary student & pastor. Every week I still use the methods I learned from his class. But he was more than a classroom teacher. He was always available in his office to lend personal advice. He gave me tough answers when I was looking for the easy way out. I took a picture of the two of us and gave it to him before I graduated. I was surprised to find it in his office nearly 10 years later when I made a visit to the campus. He said he prayed for me every day. He will be greatly missed! -BIBL 350 (Spring 1999)
