Dr. Bruce Shelley Passes Away At The Age Of 82

“CHRISTIANITY is the only major religion to have as its central event the humiliation of its God…” -Dr. Bruce Shelley

The author of the church history book I find myself recomending most, recently passed away.

The following is what Denver Seminary posted on their website:

Dear Denver Seminary Community,

Our beloved Dr. Bruce Shelley went home to be with the Lord this past weekend. We join the family in grieving this loss. Many of us have been profoundly shaped by Dr. Shelley and we already miss him greatly.

A funeral service for Dr. Shelley was held in the Simpson Chapel on Denver Seminary’s campus at 2:00pm on February 23rd.

The family is asking that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Dr. Bruce L. Shelley Endowed Scholarship Fund. If you wish to make a gift, please follow this link: Give Online – be sure to select the correct fund from the “category” drop down box in the giving form. If you prefer to mail a check, please use the address below, make checks to “Denver Seminary” and write “Shelley Scholarship” in the memo line.

If you wish to write cards or letters to the Shelley family, please send them to:

Shelley Family

Littleton CO 80120

I strongly recomend you visit the site and read what people had to say about Dr. Shelley, VERY INSPIRING.  Truly a life well lived!  


I would LOVE to find out how he incorporated The Peanuts Comic Strip into his Church History lessons!
