Reading Anthony Cross was so helpful to me when I began to re-think baptism. I'm sure it's more complicated than this, but sometimes it seems like he has kick-started a re-discovery of baptist sacrementalism one-handed.

How a generation read Beasley-Murray and apparently agreed, without becomming sacramentalists, is beyond me!


Hi Andy

Anthony trained at Bristol College and Cardiff during the late 80s, working initially in NT stuff (gospel tradition from memory). He then went onto pastorates in Cambridge and Bath, and from there to teach at Roehampton. Much of his work now is with Paternoster and he has been responsible for the explosion in Baptist academic publishing over the last 5 years or so.

Thanks Graham and Sean. I'll update post accordingly.

Maybe I've missed something but is there a reason why all the Baptist theologians you have looked at are male?

Anthony's second pastorate was at Calne Baptist Church, Wiltshire not Bath. When he left Calne he went to live in Bath.
