"An admirable study of those who, like the author, were 'rooted in the history and principles of dissent,' the book seems, in part at least, autobiographical, the several chapters arising out of the developments and interests of Sell's very diverse and rich career. Reflecting, but not burdened with, his wide-ranging historical scholarship and his determination to think theologically, the text ranges insightfully, and elegantly, from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries." —John H.Y. Briggs, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford "The triple 'E' in this work's title encapsulates the author's remarkable teaching and writing career, drawing on his command of the English history of doctrine to make the case for an Enlightenment to be neither 'utterly denounced' nor 'uncritically lauded' and a Reformed ecumenism of both evangelical catholicity and dissenting sensibility, all grounded in the evangel of the 'saving act of the God of all grace in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.' P. T. Forsyth lives again in the witness of Alan Sell." —Gabriel Frackre, Andover Newton Theological School
