(p.175) Conclusion
God's Irishmen

Crawford Gribben (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the argument of the book and offers a number of concluding reflections of more general significance. It argues that the theological debates cannot be explained by the emerging denominational structures and allegiances, and it notes the importance of an unpredictable prophetic individualism. It comments on the taxonomy of “mainstream” and “periphery,” reflects on the issues that made these debates distinctively Irish, and recognizes the dangers of elevating the importance of books and reading as primary factors in reformation in the early modern period. It concludes by noting the similarity between early modern protestants and contemporary evangelicals in Ireland.

Keywords:   denominational structures, prophetic individualism, taxonomy, mainstream, periphery, books, reading, contemporary evangelicals
