Christ Triumphant by Thomas Allin

An annotated version of Thomas Allin’s classic work Christ Triumphant has been published by Wipf & Stock. Allin was a 19th century Anglican priest who became persuaded of “the larger hope.” His book, first published in 1885, went through eleven editions. Allin firmly believed that the universalist hope was held by significant number of believers in the early Church. His attention to the patristic testimonies is one of the book’s strengths. He believed that confession of the universalist hope represents a return to catholicity.

Robin Parry has done an admirable job at editing the volume and making it more accessible to a 21st century audience. His annotations are very helpful.

Christ Triumphant is now available for purchase at Amazon, but curiously only at full price. Wipf & Stock is presently offering the title at a 20% discount.

    Thank you for the suggestion! Ordered it, another necessary book for my research.

    I had never heard of this or him (that I recall), but for anyone wanting an initial taste (though without the benefit of recent scholarly aids) I see the Internet Archive has scans of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 9th editions of Universalism Asserted, as well as of The Question of Questions: Is Christ Indeed the Saviour of the World (1885) of which it is noted “Later eds. published as: Universalism asserted” (as well as a couple later books of his).
