Book Description

Jan. 15 2003 Studies in Christian History and Thought
This collection of essays revolves around the two fields in which Professor John Briggs has contributed so much: history -- particularly Baptist and Nonconformist -- and the ecumenical movement, and many essays examine the inter-relationship between them. With contributions from colleagues and former research students from Britain, Europe, and North America.

Product Description


"John Briggs is a distinguished contributor, and a trusted representative of Baptists and Free Churches generally within in the world church scene. His historical and theological insights, coupled with his considerable ability to sum up arguments and broker agreements in very complex and sensitive ecumenical debates has won him international respect. This book is testimony to the debt many in the ecumenical movement owe to John (including myself) . . . . " — Myra Blyth, Regent's Park College, Oxford "I welcome this collection of scholarly essays and commend its catholic spirit as a genuine appreciation of the contributions that Professor John H. Y. Briggs has made both to Nonconformist church history and also in engagement on the ecumenical journey." — Stephen Copson, Secretary of the Baptist Historical Society, "The breadth and variety of these essays, reflecting the breadth of the interests of the man honoured in the Festschrift, and depth of scholarship of those who have contributed, make this a resource of great richness and delight—further illuminating areas already known, and opening up new areas for consideration." — Ruth Gouldbourne, Bristol Baptist College
