The British theologian and New Testament scholar Austin Farrer was a member of “the Oxford Christians,” conversing frequently with C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Dorothy Sayers, and T. S. Eliot. A. N. Wilson has called Farrer “the one true genius of the Church of England in the 20th century.” Farrer’s theory about the Synoptic Problem remains one of the most debated theories of Synoptic relationships in contemporary New Testament scholarship. The editors have put together a book that makes the practical, spiritual meaning of Farrer’s thought available to those who desire to integrate serious thinking with faithful life.
This book is also part of the Theology and Doctrine Collection (16 Vols.)
Praise for the Print Edition
This volume represents a considered and comprehensive review of Austin Farrer’s achievement as priest, biblical scholar, philosophical theologian, and spiritual guide. It bears impressive witness to the unified vision which inspired his life and work and explains how, although firmly rooted in his time and place, he remains significant today for all who seek to understand and practice the Christian Faith.
