Tomorrow’s man: a biography of James Henry Rushbrooke




Bernard Green (1997) Tomorrow’s man: a biography of James Henry Rushbrooke. Baptist Historical Society, Didcot.

When the Revd Dr James Henry Rushbrooke, President of the Baptist World Alliance, died of a stroke on Saturday 1 February 1947, an acute feeling of loss spread around the Baptist family and far beyond it. For twenty-seven years he had served the Alliance with distinction, first as their European Commissioner after World War I from 1920 to 1925, then as Eastern Secretary until 1928; from 1928 to 1939 he was General Secretary, and from 1939 until his death he served as President.
