At a Glance
By: F.F. Bruce
An intimate portrait of the life and times of one of the evangelical world’s most beloved biblical scholars. Although originally written for The Witness, a Christian monthly magazine, the chapters were revised and expanded so that we see a memorable picture of Bruce’s childhood in northern Scotland, his academic training at Aberdeen, Cambridge, and Vienna, and his career. Professor Bruce’s modesty and reserve show through. For instance, when mentioning his wife, Betty, he wrote, “She has been all I could wish. More might be said, but it isn’t going to be.” David Ewert said in Direction, “Once I started reading, I could not put the book down. Here is a book that will warm your heart, enlighten your mind and call you to faithfulness to Jesus and his church.”
