by F.F. Bruce

One of the challenges of a historian like Bruce writing an autobiography is that he focuses more on chronology of events than on the impact of those events on his life. It would be good to hear more about the "Redbrick" university status, the IVF Biblical Research Committee, the influence of Barth, Bultmann, and Dodd, the impact of WW2, and how he reached his conclusions on egalitarianism, John's apocalypse, and Pentecostalism.

The last couple chapters delve more into his personal life and are valuable for their insight on approaching ministry in a gracious manner. While the reader can locate some good nuggets of observation and anecdotes (I liked his take on America in the 1950's), these must be mined out. In the end, we must allow Bruce the Scotsman to be himself. Impatient 21st century Americans may not want to go at his pace.
