Dr Bruce Metzger

I just heard of the death of Bruce Metzger, pre-eminent New Testament textual critic. A brief account here. I heard Dr Metzger at McMaster Divinity College back in the 1970s and was deeply impressed by both his learning and his Christian demeanour. Over the years I have used a number of his books with great profit, especially those dealing with New Testament textual criticism and his superb work on the New Testament canon.

Praise the Lord for the gift of such a scholar.
