About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1932, this book presents a series of memories and appreciations of the renowned theologian and Bishop of Durham John Barber Lightfoot (1828–89). The text is ordered chronologically and follows a broadly biographical structure, with numerous observations from those who knew Lightfoot being held together by an editorial narrative. It was created in an attempt 'to shew something of his mind as revealed in his writings, and the influence of his utterances on his contemporaries no less than his contribution to the Theology of his day, his place among Church leaders, and his lasting value as a Teacher.' Detailed notes, appendices and illustrative figures are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Lightfoot, church history and theology.
