William Kelly (1821-1906) was once even more than a Brethren theologian who used to be a pace-setter of the reasonable specific Brethren move, and likewise even more than an indiscriminate follower of John Nelson Darby (1800-1882).

She argues that Kelly's exegesis was once meticulous and scholarly and tested his figuring out of the entire canon of Scripture. regardless of his ecclesiology, his theology used to be 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 figuring out of Biblical language and literary style and philosophy, he could be visible as a conservative highbrow. whereas belonging to the evangelical college of concept, his theology exhibits itself to be even more complicated than lots of his evangelical contemporaries and provides him hyperlinks with later Christian traditions. via his deep spirituality, Kelly can encourage the reader's personal non secular aspirations.

"This very good examine 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, the various 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 intricate photograph of either Kelly and the Christian Brethren stream which he helped to guide for one of these lengthy time."

--Neil Dickson, Editor, Brethren historic Review
