The final volume of Robinson’s works is a collection of historical studies. The meticulous attention to detail that Robinson applied to his biblical studies is also evident in his historical work. He was particularly interested in the history of Sydney Diocese and this volume includes many reflections from later in his life about his own experiences at formative moments for the diocese. This volume also includes a scriptural and topical index for the entire collection of Robinson’s Works.
For over fifty years Donald Robinson has served God’s people as a scholar and a Church leader. Throughout his ministry his pen was also active, and his various reflections upon the Bible, Christian Theology, pastoral practice, liturgy, and Christian history stimulated others to think carefully about God and their own faith in his Son. The publication of his own Selected Works, as well as the essays written by others in appreciation, now allows new generations to engage with Bishop Robinson’s thinking, and so to marvel afresh over the good news of Jesus for this world.
