Tom Howard has died at 85.

He was the Evangelical author of Christ the Tiger when I first heard of him at Wheaton College in 1968. He was also brother of Elizabeth Elliot Leitch Gren, though neither traded on the other’s fame in the Evangelical world.

His biggest influence on me, though, was Evangelical Is Not Enough: Worship of God in Liturgy and Sacrament, although he went to Roman Catholicism, I to Orthodoxy. Kenneth Craycraft’s First Things eulogy tells Howard’s pilgrimage succinctly.

Memory Eternal!
