On 13 May 2009 Dr Nigel G. Wright celebrated his sixtieth birthday. For this occasion friends and colleagues presented him with a Festschrift which reflects his career as a radical baptist leader and theologian. Over the past decades he has played a leading role in the Baptist movement in Britain and worldwide. The contributors to Challenging to change: dialogues with a radical baptist theologian interact with aspects of Wright's activities and writings so far. The spelling of baptist with a small b in the subtitle of this book reflects Wright's own usage: baptist refers to the broader tradition of believers' churches stemming from the radical wing of the European Reformation to which not only 'Baptist' churches belong but also Anabaptist, Brethren, Pentecostals, Restorationists and others. This book makes a valuable contribution to the thinking of all baptists about issues such as ministry, Church and state, church planting and evangelical identity. In particular pastors, other church leaders and students will profit hugely from it - and they will be encouraged to pick up Nigel Wright's own books.

Review quote

"Nigel Wright is a theologian of the first order who has provided depth to the ongoing debates on what it means to be a Baptist. He is a reliable mentor as a Christian disciple because he acknowledges there are many miles yet to travel on the road

of spiritual formation."

Dr David Coffey

"Nigel Wright has written wonderful, useful and readable books. I recommend them to my students and I myself go back to them again and again. He has helped form a generation of ministers for the good of our Baptist denomination."

Dr Stephen Finamore
