Dr. Alan Clifford

Speaking on Philip Doddridge

Bio:
Dr Clifford (b. 1941) hails from Farnborough, Hampshire. Reared in Methodism and converted in Anglicanism (1958), he embraced Puritanism through the influence of Dr D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1963). An early career in mechanical and electrical engineering at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough (1958-66) was followed by university study (University of Wales, Bangor, 1966-69) and eventual ordination to the Congregational ministry (1969). Alan has pursued pastoral ministry in Northampton, Gateshead, Gt Ellingham, Norfolk and (currently) Norwich. Academic profile: BA (philosophy) 1969; MLitt (philosophy of religion) 1978; PhD (historical theology) 1983. An in-depth study of Arminianism and Calvinism, Dr Clifford's doctoral thesis was published by Oxford University Press in 1990. Author of several books (and a few hymns!) on this and related themes (including Philip Doddridge, John Calvin & the Huguenots and Welsh Calvinistic Methodism), he is currently engaged on the life and work of the great Puritan Richard Baxter.
