Evangelical Library – Geoffry Williams Bursaries
The Evangelical Library is pleased to announce the creation of the Geoffrey Williams Bursaries, named in recognition of the Library’s founder. The Bursaries are for the purpose of advancing understanding in some aspect of Evangelical Christianity, using the Library’s unique holdings to do so. Recently the Library opened its new Reference and Rare Book Room. The awards are intended for men and women in any aspect of the evangelical Christian ministry who share the general outlook of the Library, and who can demonstrate that their work would benefit from a period of concentrated study at the Library.
Each award carries an honorarium of Â£500, for travel or subsistence or materials, granted conditionally upon working in the Library’s Reference and Rare Book Room. The Bursary is to cover a fixed period of study, typically lasting over several weeks, and will normally be taken up in the summer months, but in any case should be concluded by the end of 2005. An award-holder will be expected to become a member of the Library (if not already a member), and will be invited at the end of their study at the Library to provide a brief account of their work for one of the Library’s publications.
The letter of application should state in detail the proposed area of work, the qualifications of the applicant, and the period of intended study at the Library. The applicant should also arrange for one letter of reference to be sent in support of the application. Both letters should be addressed to the Chairman of the Trustees, Professor Paul Helm, preferably by email to email@example.com or posted to the Library, 78a Chiltern Street, London W1U 5HB to arrive by 15th May 2005.
These details are also posted on the Library’s website – www.evangelical-library.org.uk
On Eagles’ Wings January 20, 2023
In Exodus 19:4 God says that he bore his people on eagles’ wings. What does that mean? It’s a picture he returns to in Deuteronomy 32:11, where he says he dealt with Israel Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on […]
A Pastoral Mistake January 19, 2023
I often make the same pastoral mistake. It is not deliberate, it is often well-intentioned, sometimes it is even hopeful. It is this: to presume upon the biblical knowledge of the people to whom I speak. I do not at all mean by this to deliver a backhanded insult, appearing to confess a shortcoming of […]
