This article is a somewhat reluctant and brief follow-up to my short book, The New Calvinism considered: a personal and pastoral assessment (EP Books).

Henry Havelock – ‘every inch a soldier and every inch a Christian’ (2)

Havelock arrived back in India late in 1851 and in 1854 was appointed Quartermaster-General, promoted to full colonel. In 1855 he was promoted to Adjutant-General, responsible for the war-readiness of all the troops in India — a task he embraced with a vigour which was often resented but which proved vital and timely.  …
