John McIntosh attempts to describe more accurately and completely the spectrum of Evangelicalism (Anglican) that three successive principals of Moore Theological College appropriated and taught in the period. Each was an outstanding graduate of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, respectively.
The study traces the circumstances of their appointment and seeks to define the convictions they held—against the background of challenges and changes to their Christian faith they faced in their day.
A close examination of their published and unpublished literary oeuvre clears away misunderstandings and even misrepresentations of their thought and influence. In so doing it explains how it was that those Evangelicals in the diocese who adhered more closely to their Reformation tradition finally prevailed decisively over those who were Protestant but liberal.
It is an honor to write a pastor’s appreciation for this feast of a book—meticulous and comprehensive. John McIntosh is a scholar-pastor-missionary who has traced the graph of theological leadership at Moore College in Sydney over a significant half century (1897–1953).
If the theological college shapes the pastors who teach the churches which affect the nations this study of a ‘rise-fall-rise’ in our history has lessons for everyone interested in the vital truth of Jesus Christ and its progress. No-one who reads this can fail to be edified, informed and sharpened.
