About the Author
DAVID RHYMER claims the distinction of being (probably!) the only confirmed Anglican, ordained Baptist, working Methodist minister in Britain. As such he has a wide experience of life in three of the main Protestant traditions, and has encountered a number of others through his ecumenical connections – which extend to a French Roman Catholic monastery. Having worked as a teacher, a Baptist minister and a Methodist minister, he is currently involved in adult theological education with Exeter University, and with adult training and education in the Methodist Church.
