Hello and welcome!

John McKinlay

If you haven’t thought much about Jesus and Christian faith before, please look at God Stuff as a way of thinking again about a spiritual life

These web pages were prepared by my father, John McKinlay (1923-2014). That’s his picture on the right.

These are things John wrote and used in a lifetime of Christian teaching. He arranged most of them into a progressive understanding of Christian beliefs. You will find a starting point on the Footsteps page.

There is some information our family and forebears at not too much, my web pages, including research done by my father.

Best wishes, Dr Brian McKinlay, GPO Box 3162, Canberra ACT 2601, Australia

Acknowledgements: John was grateful to the many elders and teachers who added to his always growing store of understanding. He recognised the work of many who went before him. “We are all at best merely organisers of the insight given by the Holy Spirit,” he said. “The Spirit above all is the one who points to Jesus, who is the true revelation of the Word of God.”

Disclaimer: I have published these pages to present faithfully my father’s work, on which he spent many, many, hours. I wholeheartedly honour his burning desire to share the Gospel and teach the faith and I agree with much that is written here. But that doesn’t mean that I agree with everything. Indeed I would strongly question some of my Dad’s ideas!
