edited by Michael A.G. Haykin with Victoria J. Haykin is a study on one of the leading Particular Baptist theologians and thinkers of the eighteenth century. â€œAbraham Booth lived in a time when Baptists faced several critical decisions: Should Baptists adopt Arminian or Calvinist soteriology? How should Baptists help aspiring ministers achieve education since they were excluded from the established universities? Should they support the missions movement that would transform the priorities of the churches and the religious face of the globe? Should Baptists give a bold response to the prevalent and pernicious system of slavery? In each case, this humble yet powerfully influential servant of his church, and of the churches generally, helped blaze a path that Baptists by and large continue to follow ... This volume, the core of which consists of talks given at a 2006 bicentennial conference held at Regentâ€™s Park College, Oxford, are an important reflection on key aspects of Boothâ€™s thought and ministry.â€
