Years and years ago, some friends were talking about "meetings in heaven." They had just been listening to a tape in which Dr. Maxwell, with his usual gentle wit, described Isaiah meeting Manasseh in heaven. Here's a bit of their conversation which I remember very well:
Friend 1: I want to be there when Dr. Provonsha and Paul meet in heaven, because I think Dr. Provonsha is just like Paul.
Friend 2: Yes, and I want to be there when Dr. Maxwell and Jesus meet in heaven, because I think Dr. Maxwell is just like Jesus.
Dear Dr. Maxwell, you're my all-time favorite teacher, even though I never sat in your classroom. I've learned more about God from you than from anyone else, and I ask God to bless you very much. A thousand thanks for saying of Him what is right. I look forward to meeting you again in heaven.
P.S. I was Friend 2. :-)
