In Memory of Haddon Robinson

Blog / Produced by TOW Project

Haddon Robinson, founding President of the Theology of Work Project, died on July 22, 2017. We miss him deeply. Known worldwide as a preacher and preaching professor, Haddon was also passionate about the theology of work. In partnership with businessman Tom Phillips, he wrote to 150 leading theologians, pastors, professors and business people in 2007, asking them to join in launching the Theology of Work Project. He served as the Project’s president until 2014 and as chairman emeritus until his death. He began every session of our Project with the question that forever rings in our ears, “What does this have to do with work?” No room for sentimentalism or clichés, just an unshakeable conviction that the best guide for the work men and women do every day is the Word of God.
