In this volume, Timothy Grass outlines the life of F.F. Bruce, one of the most significant evangelical scholars of the twentieth century. He does so with originality, insight, and a grasp of the implications for the church today.

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. F.F. Bruce’s career offers valuable insights into these issues, as well as shedding light on the ways in which Evangelicalism changed from during Bruce’s lifetime.
