Lesslie Newbigin was a figure of patristic proportions in the twentieth-century history of the Church. In this intellectual and spiritual biography Geoffrey Wainwright displays the theological character of his subject's multifarious engagement in the search for Christian unity, the practice of evangelism and the strategy of mission, the compassionate service of society, and the responsible statement of the scriptural and traditional faith amid the complexities of late modern culture. Himself a distinguished ecumenist and theologian, Geoffrey Wainwright draws on thirty-five years of personal and literary acquaintance with his subject and on a thorough examination of the Newbigin archives in crafting this rich and varied portrait of an outstanding figure in the ecumenical movement.

The Ecumenical Review This one-volume condensation of a life-time's thought is a valuable resource. The main theological issues discussed are of permanent relevance.

Studies in World Christianity: The Edinburgh Review of Theology and Religion ... monumental ... this book should be a stimulus for many to go back to Newbigin's own writing and enquire as to its continuing relevance. There could hardly be a better introduction to, and survey of, Newbigin's thought ... magisterial survey.

Themelios Extraordinarily detailed study ... the strength of Wainwright's book is that it lets Newbigin speak for himself and, in so doing, reveals the remarkable significance of his ecumenical and missionary theology.

Pilgrim Post Lesslie Newbigin: a Theological Life is a good book by one very good theologian about another.

Theology This definitive study should ensure that such a twentieth-century beacon of a theological life will not be forgotten.

Reform Lesslie has been brilliantly served by this book. Wainwright the theologian, has the gift of seeing him in all his greatness and somehow has spoken of him with Newbigin's own voice and insight. He has given a great theological ordering that is not imposed; it arises naturally from a deep understanding of his subject ... a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration.

Church Times Wainwright is right in arguing that Newbigin is a classic example of the teaching bishop, a father of the Church to whom we should listen, even if we do not always agree. This book helps us to do that.
