Leon Morris, 1914-2006

Leon Lamb Morris, who died on July 24, was perhaps Australia’s most prolific biblical and theological author. He wrote over 50 books of theology and biblical commentary which have sold nearly two million copies worldwide and been translated into many languages.

This is an astonishing output for an Australian writing technical or academic books. He was well known throughout the Christian world as a careful, conservative biblical scholar. Extraordinarily, Morris received no formal theological education, apart from two years of supervision for his doctorate in Cambridge. He was a self-taught theologian who brought his rigorous and disciplined training in scientific enquiry to his study of the Bible and theology.
