John Wood Oman

Book Launched!

Tuesday 7th May, 4:30pm

On the 7th May  Fleur Houston’s launched her new book, Come Let us Reason Together: A Life of John Wood Oman, at Westminster College, Cambridge.

Our Principal Robert Pope introduced the launch event, and Professor David Fergusson, Regius Professor of Divinity in the Divinity Faculty of Cambridge University and Dr David Cornick, formerly Principal of Westminster College and Emeritus Fellow of Robinson College, Cambridge, both gave short talks welcoming the book.

John Oman (1860-1939) was one of the most original and profound theologian-philosophers of his generation. Drawing on previously unpublished archival sources, Houston traces the influences on Oman’s Orkney childhood and his student days in Edinburgh University and the Divinity Hall of the United Presbyterian Church. She reviews Oman’s subsequent publications during his ministry in Alnwick, and his influential career as professor of systematic theology and college principal at Westminster College, Cambridge. Oman’s experiences and reflections are sure to stimulate, challenge, and inspire readers today as much as they did in his own time.

The book is available in hardback (£59.00), paperback (£43.00), and ebook (£45.99).
