Thread: F.F. Bruce a Calvinist?

    F.F. Bruce a Calvinist?

    I realize he was more of a 'Biblical scholar' than anything else, and I can't think of anything he wrote about systematic theology, but was he a Calvinist? Wasn't he part of the Brethren "church"? :sniff: Some of them are Calvinists in soteriology though...

    I have his commentary on Hebrews and I would have to say, yes.

    Yeah, he is, at least with regard to soteriology. Dave Hunt acknowledges that in his half-baked book attempting to refute Calvinism, [i:a9bd45855f]What Love Is This[/i:a9bd45855f].

    Was F.F. Bruce a Calvinist? Yep.

    He describes himself as "an impenitent Augustinian and Calvinist" in the forward (p. vii) of Forster, RT & Marston, VP, [i:4d4c9145a0]God's strategy in human history[/i:4d4c9145a0], Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton: IL, 1973.

    Yes, FF Bruce was Brethren and in the UK that generally means that you are Arminian ... so that makes it even more exceptional that he was an "impenitent Augustinian and Calvinist". Guess a careful study of the Bible convinced him.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
