Continuing our series on former academic staff members of STFK Ledalero who have made a marked contribution in their chosen field, we look back at Guido Tisera, the first lecturer to obtain a doctorate in biblical theology (1992) and one of the first two raised to the status of professor by the Minister of National Education (1 July 2009). But what is remembered is not only Guido’s teaching and his many accessible books and articles (see list of publications below), but above all his simplicity, his willingness to listen and to learn, and his ability to combine ongoing academic research with ever-widening engagement in the biblical apostolate (from local to global), his popularity as a retreat giver and his quiet advocacy in controversial human rights cases. The academic, the pastoral, the spiritual and the political combined not just in his work but in himself, such that Guido Tisera was recognized as a living Word, “our letter, written in our hearts, that everyone can read and understand; plainly a letter from Christ, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on stone tablets but on the tablets of human hearts.” (2 Co 3:3)
