Willem Sterrenberg Prinsloo seen from the viewpoint of a colleague: The sudden and tragic death of Professor W S Prinsloo raises many questions that cannot be answered. However, he should be remembered for the huge contribution he has made in the field of Old Testament studies in South Africa. As editor of this journal he was outspoken about the necessity that church and university, theology and science need one another and that theologians are scientific in their research even though it is done from an ecclesiastical viewpoint. As dean he combined strictness with empathy and as a preacher he integrated solid exegesis with spiritual dedication.
