    Dr. George W. Dollar was called “Mr. Fundamentalist” by many leaders in IFB circles, including Jack Hyles.

    He was a College Professor, Seminary Professor, Church Planter, and Pastor.

    George Dollar attended Gordon College and Seminary where he received a BA in Bible and Bachelor of Divinity. By 1950 he earned two more masters’ degrees, one from Boston University and the other from Emory University. He also received his Ph.D. from Boston University.

    He taught at Columbia Bible College back in the early 1950s.

    He was Chairman of the Department of Church History at Dallas Theological Seminary in the late 50s and early 60s.

    He was Vice President of Piedmont Bible College in the late 1960s, then taught at Bob The G Man University in the 1970s.

    In 1976 he was made Chairman of the Department of Church History and Academic Dean of Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Minneapolis.

    After leaving Central he taught at Florida Baptist Seminary in Lakeland until his retirement.

    He was a well known conference speaker, preacher, church planter, and mentor to literally thousands of men who fill pulpits all around the world today, including me.

    He authored the best book ever written on American Fundamentalism, A History of Fundamentalism in American as well as The Fight For Fundamentalism, Facts for Fundamentalists, Fellowships of Fundamentalists, and The New Testament and New Pentecostalism.

    Dr. Dollar was one of the worlds foremost experts on the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement, writing a series of articles in Bibliotheca Sacra (the Theological Journal of Dallas Seminary) back in the 1960s that exposed the history, rise, errors and excesses of that movement.

    Dr. Dollar wrote scathing expos'es of Modernism and Neo-Evangelicalism. He was one of the first to publicly speak out against Harold Ockenga and Billy Graham.

    Anybody who has not heard of George W. Dollar has either been living on another planet or attended a school like HAC or OBC!

    so now, Doctor Cassidy has the mantle of Dollar upon his shoulders. His charge: to take this message to the next generation. To live and to love and to ultimately die a champion like Doctor Dollar as the Pre-Eminent Living Icon of Fundamentalism...

    all hail to the Professor and Chair of the Historical Theology Department, San Diego Baptist Seminary (oh, and President, Pastor of the Church and holder of the PhD from Same)...DOCTOR THOMAS CASSIDY.

    The rest of you ninnies who've never heard of Dollar-that will change as Doctor Cassidy takes the reins of fundamentalism. Oh, you will hear alright...

I think it was, originally, an ABA school, but about 25 years ago it broadened its outreach. Dr. Dollar mentioned to me about 10 years ago that most of his students were "colored." Remember, this was a man born in 1918 so his references were often not "politically correct." It may be a seminary that serves mostly the African American community now.

    oh now that sure says it all...yessir. An IFB icon that everyone Christian on the planet should know.

    G - Hoping your posts are a lame attempt at humor (which I always assume!! )

    But what comes across is another barb at Doc Cassidy. Even in humor. Why aren't YOU the new guru of Fundamentalism? Oh, I know . . .
    Jesus knows me, this I love.
