In the inter-war period of the 20th century, the seven major British figures covered in this book, from different Christian traditions, collectively exercised an enormous influence on international New Testament scholarship. Individually also, they made a great impact in their own time by the quality of their scholarship alongside their Christian belief. The scholars discussed are: B.H. Streeter, R.H. Lightfoot, William Manson, C.H. Dodd, Edwin Hoskyns, Vincent Taylor, and T.W. Manson. The generation of the 1920s and 30s was a time of significant shifts in international scholarship. This comparative study and reappraisal, based on the biographies of these seven figures, shows how each of these scholars reacted in distinctive ways to the new scholarship developed in Germany, which gradually found its way into British scholarship and then in turn influenced American scholars. This period can be seen as a critical international bridgehead. The oral history derived from some retired scholars who were taught by these pioneer figures is particularly interesting on the personal level of their life stories. An appendix discusses Anti-Semitism, Adolf Schlatter, and William Temple.
