More About Herbert Lockyer, F. F. Bruce & R. K. Harrison


Herbert Lockyer Herbert Lockyer was born on the outskirts of London, England in 1886. His parents were non-believers so Herbert had very little Christian training. His father was employed by the Woolwich Arsenal; there they manufactured weapons and arms for the British military.

While working at the same factory with his father, Herbert pursued acting, his was a resonant voice, standing at 6’3”, with a commanding presence, it seemed that young Mr. Lockyer was destined for a career on the stage. Yet, the direction of his life was altered, when he fell in love with Lily Flory.

Lily was a devoted Christian and invited Herbert to a small church near where he lived. That service there was a lecture and a slide presentation. The speaker showed a slide of a cartoon illustrating a man who had reached a fork in the road. Two signs revealed the destinations of the paths. One said "Heaven" and the other "Hell." In a flash of insight, which can only be described as the work of the Holy Spirit, Herbert comprehended that he was on the wrong road, the road to hell and at that moment, he surrendered his will and life to Jesus Christ.

After his conversion, Herbert Lockyer attended the Glasgow Bible Institute where he graduated, top of his class. He married Lily in 1912 and began his ministry with the Lanarkshire Evangelical Association. Throughout World War I, Herbert ministered to the troops at Perth, Scotland; after the war, he returned to Glasgow as an evangelist. In the years following, he pastored churches in Dundee and Hawick, Scotland.

Reverend Lockyer then accepted the call to be pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, and while he was there, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement. The Higher Life Movement had begun in 1875, emphasizing the significance of living in the fullness of the Spirit; this movement drew the attention of D. L. Moody and other prominent American evangelists. At a Higher Life conference, Lockyer met Dr. W. Mitchell and Dr. Stuart Holden, who were fellow Keswick leaders who were instrumental in bringing him to speak at the Moody Bible Institute 50th anniversary of their founding, in 1936. He was so well received that he began a ministry in the United States.

It was while Lockyer was at a conference in Montrose, Pennsylvania, that he met Pat and Bernie Zondervan, owners of Zondervan Publishing. The brothers were so overcome with Dr. Lockyer’s sermons that they asked for his permission to print and sell his messages for 25 cents each. The sermons were an instant success and later, the Zondervan brothers visited Herbert and asked him to write a book entitled All the Men in the Bible. Of course this was the beginning of the now famous All Bible Study Series comprised of 21 volumes, including such titles as: All the Miracles of the Bible, All the Promises of the Bible, and All the Women of the Bible.

Dr. Lockyer’s writing gifts allowed him to clearly explain the truths of Scripture and then helping the readers apply these precepts to their lives, have made these inspiring books international bestsellers. A man that seemed a natural for the theater, found himself called by God, to be a pastor, a Bible teacher and the author of numerous books, with which he touched the souls of millions of people. Herbert Lockyer also earned honorary doctoral degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London.

The last few years of Dr. Lockyer’s life, were spent in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son the Rev. Herbert Lockyer, Jr., a Presbyterian minister. At the request of his father, Lockyer Jr edited many of his father's books in the "All" series. Lockyer Jr. would gather his father's writings providing any supplemental information that was needed from his own studies. Dr. Herbert Lockyer passed away on December 3, 1984; a true man of God, persistent, consistent and most definitely a Trailblazer of the Church.

Herbert Lockyer was born in 1886 and died in 1984.

Reviews - What do customers think about Illustrated Dictionary Of The Bible (Repack) S/S?

an excellent companion for Bible study  Mar 13, 2004
As stated in the foreword, this Bible dictionary has been "designed, written, and edited with the needs of general readers in mind" and not for scholars with "formal training in biblical history or languages". I find it a valuable source book to get clarity on the historical aspects of the Bible, especially the Old Testament; as an example, following the chronological order of the rulers once the kingdoms were divided can be very confusing, and this book has a marvelous chart (much better than some presented by other dictionaries of this type and price range) with a side-by-side comparison. Another good chart is "The Parables of Jesus", telling where they appear, and in how many of the Gospels.

Heavily illustrated with black and white photos, with small but clear and easy to read print, this is not a "quality production"; the paper is thicker, but similar to what is used for phone books, but for the price, it is a tremendous value; it is fascinating just to peruse, with no particular aim in mind, through subjects like "Plants of the Bible", and "Occupations and Trades".
It has nine excellent maps at the back of the book, charted with an index and "Area" letters and numbers, which simplifies finding places, example: Masada, Map 6, Area B5.
It also has a "Teaching Outline on Books of the Bible", which is useful if you are reading a Bible that does not include one at the beginning of each book
I find I refer to this dictionary daily; once purchased, it is one of those "how did I get along without this ?" type of book. I give it the highest rating despite the paper quality, for the amount of information included at a reasonable cost.
