The Irish Presbyterian Mind

Conservative Theology, Evangelical Experience, and Modern Criticism, 1830-1930

Andrew R. Holmes

  • Considers how one protestant community responded to the challenges posed to traditional understandings of Christian faith by modern scholarship between 1830 and 1930
  • Examines the attitudes of the leaders of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland to biblical criticism, modern historical method, evolutionary science, and utilitarian ethics
  • Explores how they reacted to developments in other Christian traditions, including the so-called 'Romeward' trend in the established Churches of England and Ireland and the 'Romanisation' of Catholicism
