Dr Ian Randall has taught church history and spirituality since the early 1990s. He was based for much of that time in London, at Spurgeon’s College, and in Prague, where he supervised post-graduate students from across Central and Eastern Europe. In 2008 he moved to Cambridge, where he has combined theological and pastoral involvements. Ian has had a long-term interest in the study of movements of spiritual renewal and of missional initiatives. He is the author of several books and many essays and articles relating to these areas, including, A Christian Peace Experiment: The Bruderhof Community in Britain, 1933-1942 (Eugene, OR: Cascade Books, 2018) and A Kind of Upside-Downness: Learning Disabilities and Transformational Community, edited with David F. Ford and Deborah Hardy Ford (London: Jessica Kingsley, 2020).
Ian has written two books as part of a series of occasional papers, published by  the CCCW: Cambridge Seventy.(2016), and ‘Cambridge Students and Christianity Worldwide: Insights from the 1960s.'(2019). Most recently he has co-authored, with Mary Tanner, The Cambridge Theological Federation: A Journey in Ecumenical Learning (2022), and, with Muthuraj Swamy and Graham Kings, From Henry Martyn to World Christianity: Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide (2022).
