Anglican Historical Society: Anglican Evangelicalism in Sydney 1897—1953

1 September 2018
Hear Dr John McIntosh speak to his recent publication, so titled, which discusses what three successive principals of Moore Theological College appropriated and taught in the period. Each was an outstanding graduate of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, respectively. John will trace the circumstances of their appointment and seek 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 A close examination of their published and unpublished literary oeuvre clears away misunderstandings and even misrepresentations of their thought and influence.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, John will explain 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. Books will be available for sale at a discounted price. 1pm at Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney (find room details in entry foyer). Gold coin entry to cover light refreshments. Enquiries: Wesley Fairhall 0408 182 685; landline 9546 5555 or email wesleyfairhall7@gmail.com. Please note bookings will not be able to be responded to between Sunday 29th July and Monday 20th August inclusive.
