    Binding: Paperback

    The Reformation gave Europe national Churches, but these came to disappoint enthusiastic believers as lacking commitment. Was the right exit policy simply to join the "free" presbyterian or congregational type churches, as found in America? By the 1820s, the more strategic thinkers felt not.

    Some followed Newman into Catholicism; other pre-charismatics advocated an ongoing apostolate that would recapture prophetic gifts; JN Darby was led to the fierce conclusion that all Churches, as man-made institutions, were bound to fail. The believer's true hope was the return of Jesus Christ. With others Darby pioneered a lass formal association of believers, free of clergy and founded on radical holiness.

    Darby was a tireless traveller, talented linguist and Bible translator. His influence is still felt in systematic theology, missionary societies, para- and house-church movements. possibly even in US foreign policy toward the state of Israel.

    Marion Field focuses on Darby's development and life without judging doctrinal issues: she chronicles the story of a brilliant advocate of an insightful but controversial system. Intensity and disputes make for good copy, as the biography leads readers around Ireland, Europe, and American torn by civil disturbances and then to the car corners of the Empire.
