A Noble Company: Biographical Essays on Notable Particular-Regular Baptists in America, Volume 3
|Editor: ||Terry Wolever, Editor|
|Pages: ||596 pages |
"covers some of the more pivotal events in the American Baptist experience during the mid to late eighteenth century: the aggressive evangelistic impetus which came about in the midst of the Great Awakening, the beginnings and establishment of educational institutions of higher learning for those of our ministers who desired advanced training, and the founding of the Warren Association, which led to a more concerted and ultimately successful effort to achieve full religious liberty ... Here are the great names of the times: Shubal Stearns, Morgan Edwards, Oliver Hart, Isaac Backus, John Gano, Samuel Jones, Samuel Stillman, Hezekiah Smith, and James Manning ... And since the goal of these volumes is not to focus solely on the better-known figures, included in these pages are more of the 'unknowns': ordinary pastors and church members who enjoyed smaller spheres of influence."
