Description

A collection of articles written by Mike Ovey, the former Principal of Oak Hill College. His untimely passing in January 2017 was met with a wave of appreciation for his theological contribution to evangelicalism in the UK and across the world. It was said that his students were his writing - indeed he wrote few books. So here for the first time, together, are articles that Mike wrote for theological journals and conferences. They show the breadth and depth of his intellect and originality.

The Revd Michael J. Ovey served as the greatly loved and widely respected Principal of Oak Hill College from 2007 until his sudden and unexpected death on 7 January 2017. Before joining Oak Hill, Mike was a civil service lawyer drafting government legislation. He trained at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, and worked as a curate for four years at All Saints, Crowborough, before teaching for three years at Moore Theological College, Sydney. He joined Oak Hill in 1998 and completed a PhD in the field of Trinitarian theology. He authored Your Will Be Done: Exploring Eternal Subordination, Divine Monarchy and Divine Humility, and co-authored Pierced for Our Transgressions and Confident: Why We Can Trust the Bible. He leaves a widow Heather and three children. The editor Chris Green is Vicar at St James, Muswell Hill, London, and was formerly Vice-Principal of Oak Hill College. He is the author of several books including Cutting to the Heart.
