Another update on ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’

T&T Clark have published another endorsement for my forthcoming book, Hallowed Be Thy Name: The Sanctification of All in the Soteriology of P. T. Forsyth. This time it is from Professor Alan P. F. Sell, who writes:

‘P. T. Forsyth (1848-1921) has been described as a “Barthian before Barth” (not entirely accurate, but a great compliment to Barth). His works enjoyed a revival in the middle years of the twentieth century, and now we are in the midst of a second great awakening inspired by Trevor Hart and others in the mid-1990s. Since then articles and monographs have appeared, and among the best is this book by Dr. Goroncy. He has fastened upon the thus far insufficiently-studied theme of sanctification which pervades Forsyth’s works. His treatment is stimulating, his research is unusually thorough, his style is fluent. The result is an important book which should be read by ministers of religion and church members, as well as by professional toilers in the theological vineyard—especially, perhaps, by any who have somehow momentarily mislaid the gospel’.

I am grateful to Professor Sell for his kind words. All going well, the book should be out in late March next year.


  1. Congratulations Jason – so much fortification and steeliness in Forsyth’s grasp of the apostolic gospel. But Oh, T&T Clark, the price of the book!!


  2. Thanks Trevor, Jenny and Chris. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing this baby come full term. I’m also excited about another book on Forsyth that I have coming out (probably somewhere around the same time) which includes many unpublished sermons of Forsyth’s. The volume also includes an extended introduction to Forsyth’s pastoral ministry penned by yours truly.


  3. Great to see this publication. I would like to put it on my reading list. Is there plans for a Kindle/ebook edition? I find it a shame that many theological books are only publish in hardback – exceedingly expensive, especially with low print runs.


  4. Hi Peter. I am unaware of any plans for an e-book version, though I guess the publishers may wish to make it available via such formats. If and when such happens, and if I’m still blogging, I’ll be sure to post something about it. Thanks for your enthusiasm about the book. I have another book on Forsyth coming out next year too, and it will be priced at a more friendly rate.
