Dave Tomlinson (aka @goodluker) very kindly agreed to chat to us about his new book at Greenbelt: http://t.co/24UXYAHWzv
Author(s): Nicolas Stebbing, Benjamin Gordon-Taylor
Walter Frere was one of the great scholarly church leaders of the early twentieth century, yet he has remained something of an enigma. Although expert in many different areas of study, only a few specialists value his work today. This long-awaited book aims to make Frere and the great range of his ability, interests and legacy better known. Offering a mastery overview of his life and character and a reflection on his spirituality, it considers his outstanding role as a teacher, his innovative vision of the priesthood, the controversy he aroused as Bishop of Truro, his pioneering ecumenical work, his profound influence on the 1928 Prayer Book, and finally his enduring influence as a founder of the Community of the Resurrection. Contributors include Peter Allan CR, Bernard Barlow OSM, Philip Corbett, John Davies, Alexander Faludy, George Guiver CR, John Livesley, Alan Wilkinson and the editors.
'... bringing together a skilled and knowledgeable set of contributors who give us clear but sucinct insights into this remarkable, complex man ... I thoroughly enjoyed reading this engrossing book. A very good Christmas present for anyone with a love of the Church of England.' -- George Nairn-Briggs New Directions 201111
