What about the Irish??

As I was using the Biographical Dictionary of Evangelicals ed. Timothy Larsen (Downer’s Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 2003) today, I realised that two significant Irish theologians were absent. There were no entries for either James Ussher, the 17th century Irish Puritan, or Alexander Carson, the 19th century Irish Particular Baptist.
The Irish are always neglected. Sad.

    Was there an entry for Clary?

    Hmmmm…maybe you’ll have to write that one. “There once was a fellow from Toronto…”

    Ian,

    Guess it means you need to write the definitive “History of Irish Evangelicalism.”

    But as someone said to me – don’t write history – make it!
