1 - 2 weeks availability


From 1964 till his retirement in 1993 Harry Wardlaw was professor first in systematc theoogy then philosophical theology at Ormond College in Melbourne, Australia. This period saw the incorporation of the then Presbyterian Hall into the ecumenical United Faculty of Theology in 1969 and then in 1977 the union of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregationalist Churches to form the Uniting Church of Australia. Harry was a theological guide to both these unions, as well as a playfully serious mentor to several generations of theological students, Anglican and Roman Catholic as well as Presbyterian and later Uniting Church members. He was noted for a teaching style in which thought became embodied in gesture and any object lying to hand was a potential teaching aid; for his impish sense of humour; and for the intensity of focused attention he gave to any question or idea put to him. The present collection of articles by appreciative friends, former students and colleagues both in Australia and overseas, was presented to Harry on his 77th birthday.
