Many of us have been waiting for Andrew Graystone’s book about the John Smyth abuses and Iwerne camp culture for a while now. Well, it’s out; and it is dividing people along perhaps predictable lines. But my fear is that the many important elements within it are avoided because of some of the book’s problems. So I’ve tried to walk the tightrope between total rejection and total endorsement. I don’t claim for a moment to be offering a definitive response, not least because I’m not well versed on some of the details.
But as someone who did Iwerne camps in the 90s, I have a perspective on it at least.
