He also believes society and the church are strengthend by talking about such issues as: denominationalism and the future church; faith and technology; race and politics, parenting, urban living, etc.

Bruce earned his BA in Asian American Studies, Philosophy and Sociology from San Francisco State Univeristy (1991), his MA from San Francisco Theological Seminary (1995) and an honorary Doctor of Divinity from Austin College (2011).
