T&T Clark Companion to Nonconformity


Add your own review!

Overview

Protestant Nonconformity, the umbrella term for Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists and Unitarians, belongs specifically to the religious history of England and Wales. Initially the result of both unwillingness to submit to the State's interference in Christian life and a dissatisfaction with the progress of reform in the English Church, Nonconformity has been primarily motivated by theological concern, ecclesial polity, devotion and the nurture of godliness among the members of the church. Alongside such churchly interests, Nonconformity has also made a profound contribution to debates about the role of the State, to family life and education, culture in general, trade and industry, the development of philanthropy and charity, and the development of pacifism. In this volume, for the first time, Nonconformity and the breadth of its activity come under the expert scrutiny of a host of recognised scholars. The result is a detailed and fascinating account of a movement in church history that, while currently in decline, has made an indelible mark on social, political, economic and religious life of the two nations.

It is a fine, comprehensive volume with the editor achieving a good overall balance of subject areas and those involved and an important resource to help Methodists recognise their contribution alongside others. -- Stephen Skuce, Cliff College METConnexion and Irish Methodist Newsletter

[...] The editor Robert Pope, Reader in Theology at the University of Wales, has carried a daunting task through to a successful conclusion. The book is much to be recommended for the researcher into the story of Nonconformity. I'd advise anyone with an interest in this big subject, ever growing in terms of the books published on it, to ensure if they can that a copy of Companion to Nonconformity will be found in their local library. Alan Ruston, Faith and Freedom, Oxford, UK Robert Pope has gathered an impressive team of scholars who, together, have given us a magisterial overview of English and Welsh Nonconformity over the past three centuries or more. [...] This is a rich and invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to become acquainted with historical Nonconformity, to which students and scholars can turn with confidence. It should be a standard volume in any reference section of a library, whether serving the general public or the academy. -- Paul Ballard, UK Theological Book Review
