Boreham on Being Explicitly Christian

The editorials where F W Boreham most clearly dealt with Christian character and ethics were found in his statements about human uniqueness, his celebration of ‘nonentities’ and his concern for the disadvantaged.

Boreham’s editorials on subjects of education, justice and inclusivity featured educationalists and workers for freedom and human rights. These editorials illustrated the way that his theology of human living had public dimensions that went beyond the level of individual citizenship.
