This is a brief note to acknowledge the passing of one of the bright lights in contemporary philosophy, and Christian philosophy in particular. William Alston has passed away. Although he reached the respectable age of 87, his death came after being recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (the same thing that has also just ended the life of Patrick Swayze, incidentally).
Rest in peace.

A sad loss, not only for Christian philosophy, but for all of philosophy. Rest in peace Bill.
His contribution to philosophy will live on and continue to be valued by future scholars. What a legacy.
This arrived earlier today in my inbox, from the mailing list of IPRA (International Philosophy of Religion Association):
