Publishers Description Although the founder of the Christian religion was crucified as a rebel and a refomer, the churches enter the third millennium in the grip of conservative forces. Yet the past century has been a time of unparalleled change in both church and society. Trevor Beeson, who was deeply involved in the radical movement of te 1960s, has singled out a hundred Christians who made a significant contribution to this reform and renewal. For his pen-portraits, he has chosen people from a wide spectrum spanning the twentieth century, the world and the churches. They include well-known figures sucb as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Hans Kueng, Martin Luther King and John Robinson, but also many others, the memory of whose names has faded. Not all were involved in theological or ecclesiastical reformation, and there are painters, politicians, writers, musicians and social reformers in this company too. And there are some surprising choices. Trevor Beeson is one of the wittiest commentators on the Church today. He was Canon of Westminster Abbey before becoming Dean of Winchester. He lives in Romsey, Hampshire.
