F.F. Bruce: A Life is the first-ever full-length biography of Frederick Fyvie Bruce (1910-1990), one of the most influential British biblical scholars of the twentieth century. Over his lifetime F. F. Bruce authored some fifty books and nearly two thousand articles and reviews, and was one of the most influential New Testament scholars in the 20th Century and editor of the globally acclaimed New International Commentary on the New Testament [NICNT] for more almost 30 years. His career offers valuable insights into key issues that affected evangelicals from the 1950s onwards, including the relationship between academic theology and church life and the perception of evangelical scholarship within the academy at large.
Bruce was also beloved by an unusually wide assortment of people, and unfailingly respected by his friends and peers. Grass' book while being an intellectual biography is also a biography about Bruce's life. His was not a life full of dramatic events, but the life of a scholar whose work impacted untold numbers of people. And this is that story.
