Ethelbert W. Bullinger was born in Canterbury, England, in 1837, and died on June 6, 1913. He was 75 years old. Juanita S. Carey wrote his Biography quoting many references to be found only in Bullinger’s personal diary. He was a chorister of Canterbury Cathedral, Bullinger later studied music with John Hullah and William Monk. He was a Greek and Hebrew scholar, and the Archbishop of Canterbury awarded him the honorary Lambeth D.D. in 1881 through recommendation of the Queen of England.


In the Back Cover of her book, Carey wrote: E.W. Bullinger continues to be recognized as one of the great Bible scholars of the early twentieth century.  Bullinger's comprehensive and detailed study of figures of speech in the Bible has never been superseded.  His Bible commentaries, Greek lexicon, textual notes, and numerous expositional studies continue to inform students of the Scriptures.  Behind his many interesting scholarly works, however, is the engaging life story of a young chorister from Canterbuy Cathedral whose voice would be heard around the world through the printed page.
