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 Drawing on previously unpublished archival sources, Houston traces the influences on Oman’s Orkney childhood and his student days in Edinburgh University and the Divinity Hall of the United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). A limited number of copies will be available on the day for sale at £26.00, while a discount voucher will also be available to purchase the paperback version via the Wipf and Stock website.
