I am delighted that John Flett will be joining the Faculty of Pilgrim Theological College from the start of 2015 (see link above for formal press statement). I was heavily involved in the appointment process and was hugely impressed by John’s scholarly reputation, commitment to teaching, research and formation, and enthusiasm for the role. Some will be aware that his book, The Witness of God is widely held by missiologists and systematic theologians alike, to be a remarkable work of historical and theological exposition, combined with important constructive theological and missiological proposals. John’s just completed Habilitationsschrift on the notion of apostolicity will hopefully see the light of day very soon. His appointment is an important part of the emerging Pilgrim Theological College, and will make a substantial contribution to the life of the University of Divinity.
