Abstract:

"The first biography of J. H. Oldham, one of the greatest pioneers of ecumenism in the twentieth century." "Keith Clements draws on important unexplored archival material. Sections relate to Oldham's time as a missionary in India, his role as Secretary of the World Missionary Conference, usually recognised as the birth of the modern ecumenical movement, his reconciliatory roles in the First and Second World Wars, and his involvement with the 'Life and Work' movement. In a final chapter Dr. Clements reflects on Oldham's considerable and continuing relevance today." "This book challenges many accepted readings of ecumenical history."--BOOK JACKET.
