Dr David Pettett is one of the world’s leading Samuel Marsden scholars. And it’s about to happen: the release of his the popular version of his PhD thesis on this important colonial figure.
I think it is part of David’s thesis that much of the research into Marsden has ignored a main source of knowledge about him - his sermons (Marsden in his own words).
David Pettett is on the line….
Note: Dr Pettett's new work on Samuel Marsden will be launched by Former Archbishop of Sydney Dr Peter Jensen at 2pm on Sunday September 18 at St John's Parramatta.
