Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'In attempting to place KebLe "in context", then, the contributors to this volume are mapping out an alien intellectual and cultural terrain composed of disputes over Erastianism, apostolic succession, baptismal regeneration and prevenient grace.' —'Times Literary Supplement'

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

'Illuminating…all the essays repay reading. These are real and impressive scholarly contributions from a relatively new generation of historians.' —'New Directions'

'"John Keble in Context" is a pioneering work… It is the most scholarly and enlightening treatment of Keble in years. A splendid and rewarding read.' —Rev’d Dr Charles R Henery, Helmuth Professor of Ecclesiastical History

'This is a book that puts John Keble in his literary, cultural, political, and theological context as never before. It is essential reading for Students of nineteenth-century English literature as much as of religious history.' —Peter Nockles, author of 'The Oxford Movement in Context'
