Over the lockdown I have been working with the family of Dr Norman H Snaith (1898-1982) and his publishers to digitise as many of his books and articles as possible.
Norman Henry Snaith
…coming from a Primitive Methodist background, was a remarkable man who rose to become a renowned international Bible scholar; was awarded an Oxford D.D. in 1948; became Principal of Wesley College, Headingley, Leeds, in 1953; President of the Old Testament Society in 1957 and in 1958 was elected President of the Methodist Conference. Though renowned as a scholar, he remained at heart a Methodist Minister, devoted to preaching the Gospel, as well as teaching a generation of students about the Old Testament, he wrote a number of books and articles explaining both biblical and Christian theology for intelligent lay readers, particularly in the books published by the SCM Press and articles in the Methodist Recorder. He was intensely interested in people, a family man and a popular preacher who was well known in the War for his ’10 to 8′ radio broadcasts, a number of which have been published.Margaret Ruxton (nee Snaith), Norman Henry Snaith (1898-1982), Biblical Scholar and Methodist Preacher.
