F.F. (Frederick Fyvie)Bruce was born in October the 12th, 1910, in Elgin (Scotland), to a Brethren Assemblies family. His father was an itinerant preacher for the Assemblies. F.F. was baptized and accepted as a member of his local congregation in September 1928. He remained loyal to his denomination for the rest of his life. "Through my own experience with the Brethren, I can say they are the ideal place where a lay theologian can serve the Church with his gifts" (Restrospect, p. 285).
As a lover of the Biblie and of the classical languages, when he was only 10 years old, he started simultaneous studies in Greek and Latin. F.F. was admitted to Aberdeen University in October 1928. He studied also in University of Cambridge (England, 1932-34) and in the University of Vienna (Austria, 1934-35), studying in preparation for his Graduation and Doctoral degree, excelling in both.
Bruce taught Greek in the Universities of Edinburgh (1935-38) and Leeds (1938-47). Afterwards, he taught Bible History and Literature in the University of Sheffield (1947-59) followed by Bible Criticism and Exegesis in the University of Manchester (1959-78).
He lectured in prestigious universities all around the world: Marburg (Germany), Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Auckland (New Zealand), and Makerere (Uganda). He also lectured in numerous Theological Seminaries, among them the Calvin Seminary, in Grand Rapids (U.S.A.) and the Union Seminary, in New York City (U.S.A.).
He was voted President by the prestigious Societies of Old Testament Studies and New Testament Studies.
F.F. Bruce wrote some 50 books, plus several thousand articles, essays and reviews. His masterpiece The Acts of the Apostles: The Greek Text with Introduction and Commentary (1951) marked for the evangelical world the beginning of a new era in Bible study, being seriously considered by the Academia. In spite of never having made formal studies in Theology, he was an extraordinary reader of the subject and the Aberdeen University granted him in 1957 a Doctor Honoris Causa degree in Divinities.
ChuckTacoma WAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5An excellent Bible study companion resource.October 15, 2012ChuckTacoma WAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My wife and I give these to our Sunday School and Childrens' Church students. We emphasize that the Bible is God's Word to us and since it is one of the ways He reveals Himself to us and His wisdom and will for us, it is very important to understand it, to "study to show ourselves approved unto God," handling the Word of Truth correctly. We encourage them not to skip over words or phrases that are unfamiliar, but to look them up and understand them. It could be a word that changes the meaning of the whole sentence. It could be a word that changes your whole life.

mercyAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Incredible priceOctober 10, 2011mercyAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this dictionary for an incredible price. It covers a broad range of information and the photos and illustrations are good color quality. The only drawback is the edges of the book were "bent." That's only a problem because I bought it as a gift for someone else. But for the price, I may keep this copy and order another one for my friend. Hopefully the edges on a 2nd book won't be messed up. This dictionary is interesting to read, even though I've studied the Bible for many years.
Terry Jackson5 Stars Out Of 5July 15, 2010Terry JacksonWhen I saw the words Student Bible, I was a little reluctant to purchase because I did not think of myself necessarily as a student at the age of 43; however, I am happy and thankful that I did. The definitions are very clear and concise. I recommend this purchase.
