Abstract

Constructive theology, Alan Sell believes, arises properly out of a conversation held with (and hosted between) three primary voices; those of the Bible, the heritage of Christian thought, and “the current socio-political-intellectual environment” in particular times and places (1). In this considerable volume, Sell permits his readers to overhear a series of such conversations as they took place in the constructive labours of ten theologians selected from the English dissenting traditions between the middle of the seventeenth and the twentieth centuries (Thomas Ridgley [1667-1734], Abraham Taylor [fl. 1721-1740], Samuel Chandler [1693-1766], George Payne [1781-1848], Richard Alliott [1804-1863], David Worthington Simon [1830-1909], Thomas Vincent Timms [1842-1921], Walter Frederic Adeney [1849-1920], Robert Sleightholme Franks [1871-1964], Charles Sim Duthie [1911-1981]). These figures are treated chronologically by birth, but gathered into groups on the basis of their responses to four key moments (and ensuing “intellectual periods”) in the history of modern theology: the passing of the Toleration Act by the Westminster Parliament in 1689, the European Enlightenment and Evangelical Revival, the advent of modern biblical criticism, and the prominence of the agendas of liberal theology and its chief detractors amidst the impact of two world wars.
