As a former student of Fred Bush, I can certainly affirm his excellence in scholarly pursuit. He always challenged us to think outside the box. My year in the Middle East after I finished my education at Fuller found me continuing to stay in touch with him via snail mail. He was so very gracious in words of encouragement he offered me. His absence leaves a wide gap in the lives of all who knew him and had the privilege to sit under his tutelage.

My condolences to the family. Dr. Bush was a wonderful man and scholar. I learned much from him during my time at Fuller, especially his work on Zionism which still makes an impact in our perilous times today. May he rest in peace with his Lord and I pray peace for his family.

Dear Bernice,

I want to express to you how deeply saddened I was to read of Fred's going to be with the Lord. I don't know how well you will remember me, as Fred had so many students and mentorees through the years who looked up to him with admiration, but he certainly meant a lot to me. I learned so much from him, and I was so inspired by his godly approach to scholarship and to life, that I can scarcely put into words how much I feel that this world is poorer without him. Of course the loss is far greater for you and for his family than for the rest of us, but please know that his loss is felt by many, many people like me who admired him and were grateful for his example and his guidance. You and your family will be in my wife's and my prayers during this time.

Grace and peace in Christ,

Joseph Cumming
