The Concord of Law and Gospel

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

From Joseph Hall’s Contemplations: Ο marvellous accordance betwixt the two testaments! In the very time of their delivery, there is the same agreement which is in the substance. The ancient Jews kept our feasts, and we still keep theirs. The feast of the passover is the time of Christ’s resurrection; then did he pass from […]

Glad Tidings from Heaven

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

We don’t often hear about Welsh Puritanism, and this is to our loss. There was a strong and useful Puritan movement in Wales, developing into Independent and even Particular Baptist churches. One of the leaders of that movement was the clergymen Walter Cradock (fl. 1640s-1659).

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Robert Bolton (1572-1631) is known among us from his books reprinted recently by Soli Deo Gloria. Converted in mid-life, he became a powerful preacher of Christ and His mercy, reputed for his manliness marked by grace. He was a pastoral preacher–a true physician of the soul.

When did Evangelicalism begin?

Friday, January 30th, 2009

In 1988, Scottish Baptist historian David Bebbington published an important work, Evangelicalism in Modern Britain: A History from the 1730s to the 1980s. It is recognized as a central text in its field. In that book, Bebbington dates the beginning of Evangelicalism to the 1730s, the era of the commencement of the revival in Britain.

The Strength of the Dollar and our Baptist History Tour

Monday, January 26th, 2009

[/caption] It has been amazing to watch the US Dollar strengthen against the British pound. This had made our Baptist and Puritan History Tour all the more affordable.

Puritan Patristics: Protestant Catholicity

Friday, January 16th, 2009

B. The Puritan use of the Fathers. This positive exposition still needs some careful qualification. No reformed writer treated any church father as if his writings were on a par with Scripture. But neither did they succumb to a naïve Biblicism, thinking that they alone with their Bibles could arrive at a satisfactory system of […]
