Donald Macpherson Baillie

1887-1954. Scottish theologian and ecumenist. He served various Scottish parishes for sixteen years and was then professor of systematic theology in the University of St. Andrews for a further twenty. An outstanding teacher, he attracted to St. Andrews students from many parts of the world, especially from the USA. His published works are few, as teaching for him took precedence over writing, but his God Was in Christ (1948) went through many impressions and has been described as the most significant book of its time in Christology. The Theology of the Sacraments and two volumes of sermons were published posthumously. Joint editor of a volume on Intercommunion (1952), he was convener of the Church of Scotland committee on inter-church relations and was engaged in the Anglican-Presbyterian conversations at the time of this death.
