Bible teacher, author of more than 25 books, and a longtime professor at Colorado Christian University, Dr. Larry Crabb has died. Crabb had passed away early Sunday morning after battling various illnesses at age 76. Crabb was a noted psychologist who authored several books, including When God's Ways Make No Sense, Understanding People, and Real Church: Does it Exist? Can I FInd it?.
The Larger Story, a ministry founded by Crabb's eldest son, Kep, reports: "It is with great sadness and astonishing joy that we tell you of Dr. Larry Crabb's arrival in Heaven early Sunday morning. Heartache because we already miss him so much, and heartfelt delight because we each have a faint sense of just how much he is now enjoying the great celebration and perfect rest of life in the presence of the Trinity.
As one who taught so many of us that it is possible to trust no matter our circumstances or condition of soul, Larry can now testify to the unspeakable joy and unlimited goodness of God. It truly is well with his soul."
They are planning two memorial services, one in Charlotte and one in Denver for mid- April and both of those will be livestreamed at LargerStory.com. We will send more details as these plans are finalized. The Crabb family is grateful for the outpouring of love and support that you have offered to them and appreciate your patience as they navigate this season together.
