From 1964 till his retirement in 1993 Harry Wardlaw was professor first of systematic then of philosophical theology at the Ormond College Theological Hall in Melbourne, Australia. This period saw the incorporation of the then Presbyterian Hall into the ecumenical United Faculty of Theology in 1969 and in 1977 the union of the Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregationalist Churches to form the Uniting Church of Australia. Harry was a theological guide to both these unions, as well as a playfully serious mentor to several generations of theological students, Anglican and Roman Catholic as well as Presbyterian and later Uniting Church. He was noted for a teaching style in which thought became embodied in gesture and any object lying to hand was a potential teaching aid; for his impish sense of humor; and for the intensity of focused attention he gave to any question or idea put to him. The present collection of articles, by appreciative friends, former students and colleagues both in Australia and overseas, is presented to Harry on his 77th birthday.Contributors include: Dietrich Ritschl (Germany), the late Maurice Wiles (Oxford, UK), Frank Nichol, (NZ) Duncan Reid, Margaret Yee, (Oxford, UK), the late Davis McCaughey (Australia)
