Keswick is famed, not only as a most delightful centre for holidays in the Lakeland, but also for its literary associations - as the home of Southey, and favourite visiting place of Coleridge and his friends, and later, of John Ruskin. The spell of these great names lingers still: but Keswick is renowned and beloved of countless thousands for a reason surpassing its natural beauties and historic interest - as the venue of the greatest gatherings in the world for the deepening of the Spiritual life.
Here, year by year, five thousand people gather from all parts of the country, and indeed, of the world, for a week of meetings, which are held in the huge five-masted tent. Under the Convention's banner, "All One in Christ Jesus," the Scriptural teaching concerning the life of victory is proclaimed by speakers representing all branches of the Evangelical Church.
This volume contains the reports of the addresses delivered at the Convention of 1948, revised by the speakers.
