About-

This collection of essays by British Baptists honors the work of John Colwell amongst the Baptist community, recognizing in particular the contribution he has made to Christian doctrine and ethics and more recently his involvement in the formation of The Order for Baptist Ministry (OBM). The book explores what we are doing in morning prayer and what it is to allow the seasons and festivals of the Christian year to shape our lives.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Few theologians display the distinctive witness of contemporary British Baptists so luminously as the life and work of John Colwell. This snapshot of a larger than life figure lets us glimpse an especially winning period of British Baptist theology, beautifully displayed by the volume’s orientation around a theme dear to John’s heart—the great daily liturgy of the church catholic.”

—Brian Brock, King’s College, Aberdeen



“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It’s the greatest merit of these closely observed and finely argued essays that they not only draw deeply on the substance of John Colwell’s admirable work but also follow its trajectory. In these pages one senses not just wisdom, or insight—but love.”

—Sam Wells, Vicar, St Martin-in-the-Fields



“This is a theological gem: Liturgy, spirituality, doctrine, and biblical hermeneutics are beautifully woven together here. The authors do great justice to the creativity and integrity of John Colewell—a unique Baptist teacher and preacher. Moreover, like John Colewell, they push the boundaries of contemporary Baptist theology in ways that will inspire and equip Christian leaders in all traditions of the Church.”

—Myra Blyth, Regent’s Park College, Oxford
