“A devoted Baptist pastor for over thirty years in Bedford and London, Dr. Ruth Gouldbourne has served as a lecturer in church history. She has published and lectured on the significance of women in the Reformation and, above all, in the Baptist community. Her book on Caspar Schwenckfeld von Ossig (1489–1561) provides an excellent introduction to both the Reformer’s thought while providing a close study of his significant associations with and reflections on the role of women in the gender and theology of his time.”
—Peter C. Erb, Schwenkfelder Library, Pennsburg, Pennsylvania
“These wide-ranging and scholarly essays are a fitting gesture of appreciation for the ministry of Ruth Gouldbourne as pastor, tutor, and historian. Here are some of Ruth’s passions reflected—the pursuit of scripture truth, the wellbeing of the local congregation and minister, the value of history and the reclaiming of voices from the margin, in particular women. I warmly commend this book.”
—Stephen Copson, Honorary Secretary of The Baptist Historical Society, United Kingdom
“What is the form of our Christian witness in these challenging times? In the place of easy solutions, this thoughtful collection of essays offers vital practices and inspiring persons that may yet offer light for our lives today. This volume demonstrates the theological richness of Baptist thought and should inspire conversation in the wider Christian world.”
—Elizabeth Newman, Adjunct Professor of Theology, Duke Divinity School
