Mr. Frederick W. Grant was an exceptional Bible teacher, in later years identified with a group of exclusive brethren which became known as the Grant fellowship. In his written works he emphasized the two majestic revelations of God: Nature and Scripture, using the latter to confirm the validity of the former.
Mr. Grant steadfastly believed in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, even the numbers of Scripture. By meticulous analysis he generated a system of interpretation which perceives the inner meaning of numerals. For example, one speaks of unity, two of division. Three suggests the three dimensions of space, and so reminds us of the Trinity of God. Many scholars agree that seven represents completeness, and forty,trial. Mr. Grant carried this principle further than most, with insightful results. His method is not at all to be confused with the now discredited system of Numerics advanced by Ivan Panim. This author employed the numerical value of Greek and Hebrew letters (A=1, B=2 etc.) to verify the authenticity of Bible manuscripts.
Mr. Grant’s magnum opus is the Numerical Bible,a valuable commentary, based partially on his unique pattern of exegesis. Far beyond that, his comments and explanations are esteemed by numerous competent authors today. Each volume contains Mr. Grant’s own translation of the Bible text. There are three large volumes of the New Testament, and three more on the historical portion of the Old. His book on the Psalms is outstanding, but the rest of the poetical and prophetical division was never completed. He was partly through another volume on Ezekiel when the Lord called him home. This was completed by his colleague, Mr. John Bloore, and published by Loizeaux Brothers, as were the other seven volumes.
John Reid is the author of The Chief Meeting of the Church, Christian Baptism and the Unity of the Spirit, Eternal Dwellings,and this volume, F. W. Grant: His Life, Ministry and Legacy. Since his Homecall in 1994, his pastoral care and solid Bible teaching have continued through his writings.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
