Jeffrey Wittung (1974-2010) was asked to compile this bibliography in 2003 on the occasion of Dr. Oden's retirement from Drew University when he was a Ph.D. student at Drew working on the ACCS team. He served as an editor of Academic Books at Baker Books in Grand Rapids. With Michael J. Christenson he wrote Partakers of the Divine Nature in 2010. Jeffrey Wittung was tragically struck down in an automobile accident on January 6, 2010 on his way to work. This bibliographical update remembers his life and gifts with gratitude.

Jeffrey Wittung (1974-2010) was asked in to compile this bibliography in 2003 on the occasion of Dr. Oden's retirement from Drew University when he was a Ph.D. student at Drew working on the ACCS team. He served as an editor of Academic Books at Baker Books in Grand Rapids. With Michael J. Christenson he wrote Partakers of the Divine Nature in 2010. Jeffrey Whittung was tragically struck down in an automobile accident on January 6, 2010 on his way to work. This bibliographical update remembers his life and gifts with gratitude.
