Examiners recommendations

that Steve Taylor’s Phd on A New Way of Being Church be accepted and the degree be awarded once amendments have been made;
a glossary of terms
a brief and more fuller discussion of the contested nature of postmodernity, as per the candidates impressive answer in the oral defense
a more punchy conclusion.

Congratulations Doctor Taylor.

A toast: to God who gave a brain, the supervisors who lassoed 10 phd ideas into merely 3, and to family, who walk the journey with me.

  2. Congratulations. Spent most of yesterday wondering how you were getting on. Hope you made it out of the oral relatively unscarred.

    Definitely a toast to you and your family.
