Spirituality And Social Change: The contribution of F.B. Meyer (1847-1929)
Publisher Paternoster Press
F. B. Meyer (1847-1929) was one of the most prominent Free Church ministers of his period. He had a number of successful local church ministries, in which he gave priority to work as an evangelist, an emphasis which owed much to the decisive influence of the American revivalist, D.L. Moody. Meyer's theology was essentially devotional in character and he was also able to relate to different doctrinal perspectives within evangelicalism. Comparatively little scholarly work has been done on the contribution of F. B. Meyer. This study gives insights into the crucial developments which took place from the 1870s to the 1920s in British evangelicalism.
