-Publisher

The Author traces the organic unity of doctrine in the ongoing history of the Christian church. Orr, whose grasp of the literature was unequalled, saw how doctrine had developed as a reaction to some particular dispute in each era. The book also describes the relationship between the development of doctrinal ideas and the spread of Christianity.

James Orr

James Orr (1844-1913) was a Scottish theologian born in Glasgow. He ministered at the East Bank Church in Harwick and later was professor of apologetics and theology at the United Free Church College in Glasgow. A highly respected evangelical lecturer both in Scotland and the United States, Orr was a valiant defender of historic orthodoxy in the heyday of liberal Protestantism, as seen in his contributions to The Fundamentals (1909-1915) as well as his chief apologetic work, The Christian View of God and the World.
