Abstract

Bryan William Ball was born in the Devonshire village of Bere Ferrers in July 1935. At various times in his working life, Bryan filled the role of a pastor-evangelist; a historian of English Puritanism whose works have been published by prestigious publishing houses; an administrator of two tertiary educational institutions, and a church administrator at a very senior level. Each of these roles are challenging for various reasons, and this chapter outlines some of the significant contributions that Bryan has made in all of them.
