History and Current Curators

The upkeep of this online archive is made possible by the generous contribution of time by our current curators:

Scot Sherman is the Executive Director at Newbigin House of Studies, San Francisco, CA

Paul Weston is the Director of the Newbigin Centre at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, UK

email: pdaw2@cam.ac.uk

This online resource (originally published online and in CD format in 2003 as newbigin.net) is now made available again thanks to the enormous contributions of past curators and creators. Here, in their own words, are a few of the original production team who made this endeavor a reality:

George Hunsberger
‘The voice and accent of Lesslie Newbigin is one of the most cherished gifts of the 20th century to our life in the 21st. The church can and must keep heeding the vision he leaves as his legacy. The clarity and force of our lived and spoken witness depends on it. That being the case, this website is an essential companion.’
Tom Foust
‘It is exciting to have the material from Newbigin.net made available through Newbigin House of Studies in San Francisco, USA, and the Newbigin Centre at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, UK with Scot Sherman and Paul Weston as Curators. Paul has been instrumental in bringing all of these things together, from inception to the present, and his extraordinary strengths, expertise, experience, and education uniquely qualify him for this position.
John Flett
‘The life and work of Lesslie Newbigin remains a basic resource for understanding the questions as posed within the missionary and ecumenical discussion of the twentieth century. But, more than a significant historical figure, Newbigin’s constructive proposals drawn from theological insight, ecumenical relationship, interreligious dialogue, and intercultural relationship continue to lead us into a wider vision of the Kingdom of God. To have such open access to Newbigin’s thought is a significant blessing to the world church.
