Brian Haymes honoured with festschrift

The Baptist theologian Brian Haymes was given a festschrift yesterday in recognition of his contribution to Baptist life and theology. The book called Questions of Identity – a signal back to small earlier work – is edited by Anthony R. Cross and Ruth Gouldbourne, two colleagues who together with Brian wrote On Being the Church (Paternoster, 2009). The book will be available here soon and I’m sure will be available at the Baptist Assembly. The contents of the festschrift are:
