RT @SCM_PressCheck out our summer sale, including SCM Core Text The Book of Revelation by @BaptistBookworm http://t.co/i8kTfU2icz
Author(s): Keith Clements
'The space available to a reviewer denies him the opportunity to comment on the detail of what is here presented. Suffice it to say that here are 700 pages of acute and penetrating thinking about the nature of church and state in their broadest terms that will richly reward study.' --Sanford Lakoff
Keith Clements is General Secretary of the Conference of European Churches, Geneva. KC is the author of the definitive biography of J.H. Oldham, Faith on the Frontier. A life of J.H. Oldham (T & T Clark and WCC 1999), as well as having written and published extensively in other areas of modern church history and theology, not least studies in Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He would bring to this project his recent experience of detailed editorial work as editor of the English edition of Volume 13 (London 1933-35) in the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works series, to be published by Fortress Press in late 2006. Having retired as general secretary of the Conference of European Churches, Geneva, in December 2005, he is now in "active retirement" in Bristol, England. He has a number of pending assignments as visiting lecturer in ecumenical and social theology in the UK and abroad. If adopted, this proposal would be his main literary priority in the next 18 months/two years.
