Derek Kidner (1913-2008)

Justin Taylor is reporting that Derek Kidner has gone on to be with the Lord. Kidner was one of my favorite biblical scholars.

Derek Kidner was my father and he died on November 27th. As well as being an Old Testament scholar, he began his career as a Concert Pianist. He won several major piano competitions and on one occasion played under Sir Malcom Sargent. He was a humble man who dedicated his life to the Lord, and I am honoured to have been his daughter. He was married to Mary who died in 2003 at the age of 90. Derek had two children, Jim and Faith, 6 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

Thank you for taking the time to post on my blog. I was not aware that your father was also an accomplished musician. It appears by your description that he was quite a man. I want to thank you and your family for sharing him with us through his ministry. I know that I have been theologically and spiritually enriched by his writings in particular. Let me also express my condolences to you and your family.
