Publishers Description This book explores the significance of the life and ministry of Donald English for the Methodist Church and the wider Christian church for today. The death of Donald English on 28th August 1998 inflicted a heavy loss on world Methodism. He had retired only three years previously and was expected to continue his effective ministry as a Methodist and ecumenical statesman for many years to come. Donald English's life and work was many-faceted. An outstanding Methodist preacher, his gifts were used in local church ministry, overseas missions and at many significant large-scale events. But Donald English was more than a Methodist. From his early period as a Christian leader he identified with the wider Christian world and was increasingly recognised as an evangelist who was able to serve within ecumenical contexts. More Than A Methodist pays tribute to the varied aspects of Donald's career. Beginning with his early life in the north-east of England, this biography traces Donald's time as a university student and his progression into theological teaching through to his period of missionary service in Nigeria, and then beyond, to his roles as General Secretary of the Methodist Home Mission Division from 1982 to 1995, and his two periods as President of the Methodist Conference. There are also chapters analysing his ecumenical contributions, international role and personable qualities and attributes.
