Very Good- Trade Paperback. Binding is clean, sound and unworn. Several dogged pages, else contents are almost as new.; 8-1/4" Tall, XV + 230pp. PAPER COVERS. Cover is considerably lighter than posterboard. BIOGRAPHY. Foreword by Bishop Lesslie Newbigin. "Roland Allen was, in his time, a lonely prophet. His ideas seemed to most of his contemporaries eccentric and unrealistic...His writing had a kind of bulldog grip, and you could not shake them off. Today many of the things for which he argued are generally accepted: that ordination to the priesthood is not identical with induction into a salaried profession; that Christian disunity is a scandal and an absurdity; that the Eucharist is the essential centre of the life of the Church; and (of course) that the churches of the former 'mission fields' ought to be entirely free of dependence on the missionary agencies which officiated at their birth. These ideas, radical when Allen canvassed them, are now commonplace.." This biography was written by a Grandson in response to others' studies about Roland Allen which Hubert has found portrayed a rather dry theologian, rather than a warm and kindly-if rather austere and argumentative-human being. "In an effort to bring his personality a little bit more to life, therefore, I have ventured to assemble the material in the ensuing memoir. " Index. Six Appendixes. More than a dozen b/w photos are included.
