F.F Bruce A Life

F.F. Bruce gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Neutestamentler in der britischen Theologie des 20. Jahrhunderts (siehe dazu auch den Brief vom Kümmel an Bruce). Der aus der Brüderbewegung stammende Theologe verband auf vorbildliche Weise höchst anspruchsvolle Forschungsarbeit mit einem lebendigen Glauben an Jesus Christus. Im Frühling 2011 ist ein Buch über sein Leben erschienen. Der Verlag schreibt über:

Evangelicals have often wrestled with two problems: the relation between academic theology and church life, and the quest for recognition of their status as credible interpreters of the Bible. Frederick Fyvie Bruce (1910–1990) was one of the most influential British biblical scholars of the twentieth century, and his career offers valuable insights into these issues, as well as shedding light on the ways in which Evangelicalism was changing from the 1950s onwards. This biography integrates discussion of his family life, his activity as a member of the Open Brethren, and his academic career. Tim Grass argues that Bruce, like his father, was always something of an evangelist at heart.
