The Conservative Resurgence: An Annotated Bibliography

Written by , Posted in Books, History, SBC, Theology

Yesterday, I published an annotated bibliography of the Conservative Resurgence at Between the Time. A lightly edited PDF version of that bibliography can be downloaded from the “Writings” page of this website. If you’re interested in learning more about the theo-political controversy that engulfed the SBC during the final two decades of the twentieth century, I hope you’ll check out the bibliography.

Reviewing Key Works in Andrew Fuller Studies

Written by , Posted in Book Review, Books, History, Ministry, Missions, SBC, Theology

Yesterday, I linked to my three-part series on Recent Trends in Andrew Fuller Studies, which was published earlier this week at Between the Times. In that series, I mentioned that there have been four significant monographs dedicated to Andrew Fuller that have been published since 2003. I’ve written reviews of each of those books, and each of my reviews are available online. I hope the reviews are helpful. I also hope some of you will consider reading the books themselves, beginning with the Morden and Brewster volumes.

My review of Peter Morden’s Offering Christ to the World: Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) and the Revival of Eighteenth Century Particular Baptist Life (Paternoster, 2003) was published in The Journal of Baptist Studies, volume 1 (2007). You can read it here.

My review of Paul Brewster’s Andrew Fuller: Model Pastor-Theologian (B&H Academic, 2010) was published on the Credo Magazine website and subsequently reprinted in The Andrew Fuller Review, vol 1 (September 2011). You can read the Credo version of the review here.

My review of Chad Mauldin’s Fullerism as Opposed to Calvinism: A Historical and Theological Comparison of the Missiology of Andrew Fuller and John Calvin (Wipf and Stock, 2010) was published in Themelios (April 2012). You can read it here.

My review of Chris Chun’s The Legacy of Jonathan Edwards in the Theology of Andrew Fuller (Brill, 2012) was just published in the most recent edition of Themelios (November 2012). You can read it here.
