William Kelly (1821-1906) used to be even more than a Brethren theologian who used to be a pace-setter of the reasonable particular Brethren circulation, and in addition even more than an indiscriminate follower of John Nelson Darby (1800-1882). He used to be very hot not just in the Brethren but additionally by means of Christian leaders of different denominations. during this e-book Dr. Critchlow examines Kelly's vigorous and scholarly appraisal of the German "School of upper feedback" and his observation on quite a number works of up to date Anglican and non-conformist theologians. She argues that Kelly's exegesis used to be meticulous and scholarly and confirmed his figuring out of the full canon of Scripture. regardless of his ecclesiology, his theology was once nuanced and can't simply be stereotyped. As an expositor of the debatable issues, "the Atonement" and "the After-Life," he could be defined as a Biblical literalist, yet in his realizing of Biblical language and literary style and philosophy, he could be visible as a conservative highbrow. whereas belonging to the evangelical college of idea, his theology exhibits itself to be even more complicated than lots of his evangelical contemporaries and offers him hyperlinks with later Christian traditions. via his deep spirituality, Kelly can motivate the reader's personal non secular aspirations.

"This very good research is the 1st to take a whole view of William Kelly's theology. Anne-Louise Critchlow deftly exhibits how Kelly engaged with, in addition to disputed, a few of the mainstream theological advancements of his time. She succeeds brilliantly in finding Kelly in the highbrow milieu of his age, and in doing so presents a way more nuanced and complicated photo of either Kelly and the Christian Brethren flow which he helped to guide for any such lengthy time."

"The worth of William Kelly's commentaries, in particular these at the New testomony, have lengthy been prized within the Plymouth Brethren. during this pioneering research of Kelly's theology and hermeneutic, Dr. Critchlow demonstrates his position in old theology as a Victorian conservative evangelical highbrow, but in addition succeeds admirably in exhibiting that Kelly's Trinitarian, Christocentric, affective mysticism is a source for modern international evangelicalism."
--Neil Dickson, Editor, Brethren ancient Review
