Dr. Peter S. Ruckman died this morning. He was 94 years old. He received a BA from the University of Alabama and an MA and PH.D. from Bob Jones University. His 65 year ministry was characterized by controversy regarding his personal life, his teachings and especially his views on the King James Version of the English Bible. Controversial as he was there is no denying his artistic talent or his intellectual brilliance. James R. White said of Dr. Ruckman in his book, The King James Only Controversy, that to call Ruckman "outspoken is to engage in an exercise in understatement. Caustic is too mild a term; bombastic is a little more accurate.…There is no doubt that Peter S. Ruckman is brilliant, in a strange sort of way. His mental powers are plainly demonstrated in his books, though most people do not bother to read far enough to recognize this due to the constant stream of invective that is to be found on nearly every page. And yet his cocky confidence attracts many people to his viewpoint." May he rest in the arms of the Savior, and may his family find comfort in the prayers offered for friends and family at this time of his passing.
