For the last few weeks I have been assisting Book Aid sort through the library of the late Terence Croft Mitchell (17 June 1929 – 21 April 2019), Keeper of Western Asiatic Antiquities at the British Museum from 1985 to 1989. During his career he accumulated an extensive library of books on biblical archaeology and ancient near eastern languages. Book Aid hopes to keep this unique collection of around 1,000 books together and find a library willing to buy them. Some of other books have already been set aside to form the core of a Bible College library in northeast Africa.
Working through the collection I was delighted to find the rare text of a lecture by F F Bruce called New Horizons in Biblical Studies that I had been looking for some time. My thanks to F.F. Bruce Copyright International, Inc., Bath, England, and Nashville, Tennessee, for their kind permission to digitise and host it. Bruce’s lecture focuses on the contributions being made by archaeological discoveries to the understanding of the biblical text. You can now read the article by clicking on the link below.
