Author

John Angell James (1785–1859) was a Congregationalist Nonconformist pastor at Carrs Lane Chapel in Birmingham, England. He also chaired the board of education of what was to become Mansfield College, Oxford. He was awarded honorary doctorates by both Princeton and Glasgow Universities. A staunch Calvinist steeped in practical piety, he preached and wrote to the average person saying, “I write plain truths, in plain language, for plain people!”

 

Endorsement

“Especially must I mention the name of that honoured father of all the Dissenting churches, the Rev. John Angell James, of Birmingham. There is no name I think just now that ought to be more venerated than his.” — Charles Haddon Spurgeon at the ceremony for laying the Metropolitan Tabernacle foundation stone
