Remembering Bruce Shelley, a historian for the people


Church historian Bruce Shelley of Denver Seminary has passed away. His Church History in Plain Language is a great introduction to the field–especially for readers who share his evangelical faith. Over the years he was a good friend to Christian History magazine, of which his son, Leadership Journal editor Marshall Shelley, was executive editor when I joined the magazine in 2002. I am very sorry to see Dr. Shelley go. Please keep Marshall and the rest of the Shelley family in your prayers.

For a restrospective on Bruce Shelley’s work, see this article on Christianity Today’s history website.
