SHELBY- Dr. Daniel E. Goodman, 40, of the Gardner-Webb University School of Divinity died unexpectedly on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2009.
Goodman was professor and Bob D. Shepherd Chair of New Testament Interpretation. Dr. Goodman joined the faculty of the Divinity School at Gardner-Webb in the fall of 2003 as Associate Professor of New Testament. Prior to coming to North Carolina, Goodman served as Associate Professor of New Testament Studies at Palm Beach Atlantic University, where he was twice named Professor of the Year, and was awarded the Charles and Hazel Corts Award for Outstanding Teaching. In 2004, Goodman was one of only ten theological school professors nationwide to be awarded the Theological Scholars Grant by the Association of Theological Schools and the Lilly Foundation for his project on the history of Baptist-Jewish relations. Goodman was an active and respected scholar in his field. In 2006, Goodman was issue editor and a contributing author for Review and Expositor's issue on Jewish-Christian Dialogue. In August 2006, The Gardner-Webb Board of Trustees awarded Goodman the distinction of the Bob D. Shepherd Chair of New Testament Interpretation. Although Goodman's ministry took place first in the classroom, he was equally devoted to serving the church. He had served as an interim pastor in Baptist churches in New York, New Jersey, Florida and North Carolina. Goodman also preached and taught in numerous churches across North Carolina. Most recently he had served as Interim Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Asheville. Danny was a devoted husband, loving father, and a loyal friend. He was a member of Boiling Springs Baptist Church where he served as a deacon and sang in the sanctuary choir. Dr. Goodman was a native of DuBois, Pa. and Wellington, Fla. He was a graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Drew University.
He is preceded in death by his father, Alvin Eugene Goodman.
Danny is survived by his wife, Barbara Wallace Goodman; sons, Daniel and Dylan; his mother, Janet Kirkland McElveen and her husband, David, of Florida; grandparents, Glenn and Mable Frost of Pennsylvania and Marjorie McElveen of Florida; his sisters, Robin Henriquez and husband, Miguel, of Pennsylvania, Terri Alderman and husband, Lewis, of Florida, and Dana Bates and husband, Chris, of Florida; his father and mother-in-law, Robert P. and Sherrill Wallace; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
