F. F. Bruce Biblical Formation Bundle (5 Volumes)
Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.
This bundle include five (5) volumes by F. F. Bruce:
- Second Thoughts on the Dead Sea Scrolls: The First Book to Read about the Story, the Scrolls, and Their Significance (1964/2017): F. F. Bruce’s account of finding the Dead Sea Scrolls and learning of their importance will make you feel as if you are making the discoveries yourself. This edition is an excellent introduction to “the greatest manuscript discovery of modern times.” F. F. Bruce’s balanced and thoughtful book answers the questions readers still want to know about the story, the Qumran community, the scrolls, and their significance for Christianity and biblical studies.
- New Testament History: The Jews, the Romans, and the Church – Its Religious, Political, and Philosophical Context (2018): The story of the New Testament is best understood when it is set in its historical context, which is what F. F. Bruce does brilliantly in this book. He begins by explaining the political, social, intellectual, and religious aspects of the Jewish people after their return from exile. The life and ministry of Jesus is then set within that culture.
- The New Testament Development of Old Testament Themes: Seven Old Testament Themes Perfectly Fulfilled in Jesus Christ (2018): To understand the Old Testament themes that were fulfilled in Jesus, we need to understand Old Testament thought. F. F. Bruce reveals the context of the New Testament writers’ understanding of the Old Testament by focusing on seven Old Testament themes—the rule of God over all creation, the salvation of God, the victory of God, the people of God, the son of David, the servant messiah, and the shepherd king.
- Understanding Biblical Criticism: What It Is; What It Does; Why It Matters (2017): 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.
- The Books and the Parchments: Original Languages, Canon, Transmission, and How We Got Our English Bible (2018): The Books and the Parchments is a classic text on the history and origins of the Bible. It explains the languages in which the Bible was written, how the books of the Bible were chosen, and the Bible’s transmission and translation – from the earliest translations to the most popular English versions.
