Obituary Of John E.
Dunn In Word And Work Magazine
On January 8, there passed away from our midst the beloved John E.
Dunn, a good man and a great, and a faithful, earnest servant of the
Lord, widely known in the church of Christ. It was when he was a
student in the Nashville Bible School under J.A. Harding, on my
entrance of the school, that I first met him. I remember quite well
Brother John E. Dunn’s kindness and loving interest and regard for
me in those days. The estimate I formed of him then I have never had
occasion to change; but through the years I found him to be always
the same high-minded, clean, conscientious Christian gentleman, and,
more than that, even a true, warm-hearted brother in the Lord. He
was a strong preacher; and he preached not in the pulpit alone, but
in every home. He could gather the members of a household around him
and hold their interest for hours while he talked and taught and
discussed the things of Christ with them. I have never seen just his
equal in this respect. And in every community where he labored he
did a great good work. He really won people to the Lord. He brought
them to repentance, he shamed them out of their wrong ways, he led
them to trust in Jesus Christ their Savior. And he won the love, and
the high regard of the people among whom he worked. He died too
early as we would think (he was 65 years old) but it was God’s time,
and there are no regrets, although we mourn his loss. He rests from
his labors and his works do follow him.
