P. T. Forsyth

Peter Taylor Forsyth (1848-1921), a Scottish theologian, graduated from the University of Aberdeen and then studied under Albrecht Ritschl in Germany. "During successive Congregational ministries at Shipley, Hackney, Manchester, Leicester, and Cambridge he shed his early theological liberalism and became a passionate exponent of an approach in which the cross was the criterion of truth. In 1901 he became principal of Hackney Congregational College and in 1905 chairman of the Congregational Union."[1]
