William Porcher DuBose

Priest, Theologian and Writer; Dean of the School of Theology at the University of the South
b. April 11, 1836
d. August 18, 1918

Although William Porcher Dubose was a faithful servant from a young age, he didn't actually become a published writer until the age of 56. Among his many works are The Soteriology of the New Testament (1892) and The Gospel in the Gospels (1906).

Soter is the Greek word for Savior (DuBose was a Greek scholar). Therefore, Soteriology in the Christian context is the study of Christ as Savior, or put another way, the study of what we mean when we say Christ saves us.

Almighty God, who didst give to thy servant William Porcher DuBose special gifts of grace to understand the Scriptures and to teach the truth as it is in Christ Jesus: Grant, we beseech thee, that by this teaching we may know thee, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
