Horizons in Biblical Theology devoted its spring 2009 issue (Volume 31, Number 2) to a tribute to Dr. Cullen IK Story, beloved New Testament professor at Princeton Seminary. The volume contains Story’s last, unpublished essay, on Isaiah and the suffering servant, as well as four essays written by former students of Dr. Story’s and one written by Story’s son Lyle. The volume also provides an introductory summary of Story’s life and academic contributions at Princeton, a photograph of him in the classroom, and a comprehensive bibliography of his publications.


Dr. Story shares a moment with students.

Story, who died in November 2008, taught at Princeton Seminary from 1961 until his retirement in 1985. Generations of Princeton students learned New Testament Greek from him, and benefited from his deeply pastoral presence as their teacher.

One such student, David Moessner (M.Div., 1975) who teaches at Dubuque Theological Seminary, wrote the introduction to the volume and an essay on the “kenotic hymn” in Philippians 2. “I know that former Princeton students will enjoy reliving some of their fond memories of Dr. Story’s teaching and his pastoral presence on campus,” Moessner said. “As far as I know, this is the only collection that honors this great teacher of the church, the only Festschrift dedicated to him.”
