Paul G. Wassenich was a beloved and much-honored professor of religion at Texas Christian University after serving as Bible Chair of the University of Texas at Austin.
Paul Wassenich was a man of principles. He was a conscientious objector, earning the wrath of the American Legionnaires in Fort Worth for his comments about war. He was an independent thinker and matched wits with the dean of the Disciples House at the University of Chicago Divinity School. He supported labor in Detroit even though prominent business owners were members of his church. In Austin and Fort Worth, he was a strong supporter of civil rights for Blacks.
Paul’s wife lovingly collected his sermons, lecture notes, and seminar outlines to add to his memoirs. Arranged somewhat chronologically, these documents show the growth in his thinking. After he retired he grew peaches at the Wassenich farm near Mineral Wells, Texas, and gave seminars for lay people on contemporary theologians at churches across the state.
