Show Summary Details


Camberwell, a rapidly expanding suburb to the south of London, was the scene of the ministry of Joseph Irons. The strong emphasis on high Calvinism in his work at Grove Chapel, Camberwell, led to accusations against him of doctrinal antinomianism, which he robustly rejected. Whilst emphasizing the primacy of preaching, his social concern was evident, and he associated in some pan‐evangelical ventures. His political theology featured a strong anti‐Catholicism, especially in the latter years of his life.
