Tony studied maths and theology at Oxford and Cambridge before joining the faculty of theology in the London School of Theology in 1973. He has remained here since then, apart from a year away spent teaching in Kenya and researching in the USA. He was Course Leader for the School’s BA programme for twelve years before becoming Director of Research from 1996 to 2008. In 2000 he was recognised by Brunel University as Professor of Historical Theology and in 2004 he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Divinity by Oxford University. He is an enthusiast for Christian doctrine, and especially its history. His desire is for students to become more aware of the riches of the Christian heritage. He has the ability to express complex doctrinal concepts. This talent is visible in his Concise History of Christian Thought (2006) and The Lion Christian Classics Collection (2004). Most of his scholarly writings have been on Calvin, including his John Calvin: Student of the Church Fathers (1999). He has worked intensively on the doctrine of justification and has published Justification by Faith in Catholic-Protestant Dialogue (2002).
