C. F. D. Moule, R.I.P. (1908-2007)

His was not a household name, but C. F. D. Moule was a luminary in my field. He was a great scholar who also had a reputation for having a warm evangelical spirit. For me by far, his most influential book was his first book, An Idiom Book of New Testament Greek. I have benefitted from this book immensely over the years and can say that some of the ideas in my own publications can be traced backed to nuggets found in this little volume. Would that we all could be as careful and prolific as C. F. D. Moule. R.I.P.

    Good post, Denny. Many students taking Greek today are benefiting from Moule in many ways, though unbeknown. His Idiom Book will continue to be used for a long time.
