Book Presentation

On Sunday 20 February part of the morning service of Didsbury Baptist Church was given over to a surprise presentation. Friends and family joined us to present to Brian Haymes a volume of essays in his honour. Questions of Identity: studies in honour of Brian Haymes is edited by Anthony R Cross and Ruth Gouldbourne and is volume 6 in the Centre for Baptist History and Heritage Studies series.  The presentation proved to be a particularly joyful and memorable occasion.

Andy Goodliff reports on the book here and here.  Sean Winter, who has a chapter in the book and whose video message from Australia formed part of the presentation reports on it here. Simon Woodman also participated in the project and presentation and writes about it here.

Questions of Identity can be ordered from the Centre for Baptist History and Heritage here.

After the service, book contributors and friends gathered around Brian and Jenny for photographs. Here’s one of the motley crew:
