Surveying the Landscape
Doctrinal Peaks
Ecclasiological Thickets
Rivers, Rivulets - and Encroaching Desert?

The first comprehensive study of the systematic, doctrinal and constructive theology produced within the major Nonconformist traditions during the twentieth century.

This book is based on the 2006 Didsbury Lectures and focuses on the major nonconformist traditions (Congregational, Baptist, Presbyterian, Unitarian, Methodist and United Reformed). In the first chapter the landscape is surveyed, with reference to such topics as the New Theology, the First World War, the reception of Karl Barth, the theological excitements of the 1960s, and pluralism.

The second chapter concerns the major Christian doctrines: God, Christ, the Holy Spirit and the Trinity, while in the third ecclesiological and ecumenical themes are discussed.

Eschatology is treated in the concluding chapter, and there follow the author's assessment of the significance of twentieth-century Nonconformist theology, and his observations regarding its current state, future content and practitioners.

Alan P. F. Sell has held two pastorates and theological lecturing positions in England, Switzerland, Canada and Wales. He is now engaged full-time in research and writing, and in lecturing at home and abroad.
