Overview

The term “biblical criticism” simply means discerning the most accurate text of the Bible (“textual criticism”) and then exploring issues such as who wrote the various books of the Bible, when they were written, and the circumstances of the writing (“higher criticism”). Yet because the word “criticism” can imply fault-finding and because some prominent biblical critics come to their study with a skepticism of the historical value of the Bible, biblical criticism often stirs up suspicion or even hostility. F. F. Bruce assures us that we don’t have to be afraid of biblical criticism—textual, higher, source, form, or other approaches. Instead, he says, biblical criticism “can serve to confirm the validity of the Gospel record.”

F. F. Bruce

F. F. Bruce (1910–1990) was one of the founders of the modern evangelical understanding of the Bible and served as the Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis at the University of Manchester. After teaching Greek for several years, first at the University of Edinburgh and then at the University of Leeds, he became head of the Department of Biblical History and Literature at the University of Sheffield in 1947. He studied at University of Aberdeen, Cambridge University, and the University of Vienna.

Bruce wrote over 40 books, including New International Bible Commentary, Paul: Apostle of the Free Spirit, The Epistle to the Galatians: New International Greek Testament Commentary, Romans in Tyndale Commentaries, and The Book of Acts, The Epistles to the Colossians, to Philemon, and to the Ephesians, and The Epistle to the Hebrews in The New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT).
