Dr. Hamilton was my professor of Theology at Colgate Rochester Divinity School in the early '60s. Now in these later years I credit him with giving me the permission to be fully open in my own theological/philosophical search. I considered myself a Christian when I was in seminary preparing for Christian ministry. I now identify myself as an atheist and a devotee of Jesus of Nazareth.
I still treasure his early books on Christian Atheism. Now I have time to read about Melville. A great, brave human being.
I was a student of Dr. Hamilton while I was at Hamilton College. He answered many questions for me. He was a great man.
With deepest sympathy to the Hamilton family during your time of grief...God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.
To the the family of William Hamilton - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
I remember being introduced to Dr. Hamilton's work when I was in college, He is a voice cying in the wilderness.
My condolences to the Hamilton family at this sad time. A good life he lived.
