The Keswick Movement: A Comprehensive Guide


Bosson, Chris J., Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society


The Keswick Movement: A Comprehensive Guide. By Charles Edwin Jones. Lanham, MD: Scarecrow, 2007, xxxi + 403 pp., $75.00 cloth.

Comprehensive bibliographic guides to the Keswick Movement are markedly scarce. In fact, Charles Edwin Jones's landmark 1974 work, A Guide to the Study of the Holiness Movement, which included a section detailing the Keswick Movement, may stand as the first and last of its kind. With the exception of Keswick: A Bibliographic Introduction to the Higher Life Movements, David Bundy's laconic treatment of the movement a year later, scant attention has been given to this most elusive of movements. And there is good reason for this. Keswick, unlike its American Holiness forbearers, has proven ineluctably difficult to delineate. A strand of holiness teaching that enjoyed majority support among evangelicals in the wake of early twentiethcentury fundamentalism, Keswick has resisted the pull of institutionalization, preferring instead the path of relative obscurity. Thus, it was founded and has continued largely as an annual convention in the bucolic lake district of northwest England.

Each of these acts to guide the reader through the sometimes foggy travails of these respective movements. The last volume, consisting of more than 3,700 total selected entries, introduces researchers and Holiness Movement enthusiasts alike to the leaders, dissenters, and ideas of the Keswick Movement. In addition, Jones includes entries related to the vast network of transdenominational Bible conferences, domestic and foreign mission agencies, collegiate and training institutions, and publishers sympathetic to the teachings promulgated by the annual Keswick meetings.

Unlike his earlier treatment-characterized by a mélange of disparate subject headings-Jones's work is organized in five distinct parts. He first sets the movement in its historical context, illuminating the settings and intellectual climates in which the Keswick Movement spread. …
