Eugene England was a fascinating figure in the late 20th century church. He was an influential teacher, a professor, a social activist and a prolific writer. His authorized biography, written by Terryl Givens, will soon be published by the University of North Carolina Press.
Regarding his essay “Why the Church is as True as the Gospel,” The Eugene England Foundation had this to say:
“This classic essay makes the case for the Church being as (or even more) important than the gospel for our salvation because of its role as a “school of love.”
We agree with that assessment of the essay, but it doesn’t quite do it justice. England’s essay is full of insight on so many levels that, if we were able, we might make it “required reading” for the entire church. We invite you to read it for yourself here.
