I’ve heard confirmation that OT scholar Derek Kidner has gone to be with the Lord. The memorial service was held last Friday. Kidner, an ordained Anglican priest, held the following positions:

  • Curate of St. Nicholas, Sevenoaks (1941-1947)
  • Vicar of Felsted (1947-1951)
  • Senior Tutor at Oak Hill Theological College (1951-1964)
  • Warden of Tyndale House in Cambridge (1964-1978)

He was known for his engaging, insightful, and accessible work on the Old Testament. The following is surely a selective list, but here are his main commentaries on the OT (all published by IVP):
