James Craig (1818-1899). Judenmissionar - Evangelist - Gemeindegründer

Nicholas M. Railton

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Though today largely unknown in the country of his birth James Craig had a considerable impact in the north of Germany in the second half of the nineteenth century. He established a church for Jewish converts in Hamburg, which is still functioning today, and was a pioneer of the holiness movement in Schleswig-Holstein. Craig’s outreach work as well as his tract and Bible distribution all over the continent of Europe are discussed and analysed. The nature of Craig’s interest in the Jewish people and his ecclesiology, seen against the backdrop of Hamburg Lutheran orthodoxy and rapid social change in an urban environment, is meticulously and rigorously examined. In the conclusion Craig’s achievements are placed into the wider context of the religious history of Germany.
