John Nelson Darby: A BIOGRAPHY
It’s been over thirty years since Max Weremchuk released his definitive biography on one of the most influential figures to shape the evangelical church. Since then newer works have appeared, attempting to shed light on this complex and contested figure, but none have captured the heart and painted so vivid a portrait of the man, John Nelson Darby (1800 – 1882), as Weremchuk’s classic volume.
With newly expanded material, this updated biography offers a refreshing look at the life and ministry of one of the most controversial and misunderstood figures in modern church history. Drawing extensively from unpublished materials, familial testimonies, and the wealth of printed documentation that is spread across several different languages, Weremchuk’s skillfully woven tapestry of Darby remains unrivaled.
“An approachable, lively read, replete with Darby’s own thought as well as appraisals by both admirers and critics. This book is a must-read primer for both the casual and more purposeful reader wanting insight into the life and thought of J. N. Darby” – T. J. Marinello, PhD (Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Tyndale Theological Seminary, the Netherlands)“Weremchuk helpfully places Darby in context, and provides an accessible entry into the life of an extraordinary individual. The appearance of this updated edition of his earlier biography is welcome indeed” – Mark R. Stevenson, PhD (Professor of Bible and Theology, Emmaus Bible College, Dubuque, Iowa)
