The Works of Abraham Booth - Volume 1
Confession of Faith & Sermons
Edited by Michael A. G. Haykin
“Abraham Booth (1734-1806) was a leading Baptist theologian of his day, one of the most widely read Baptist authors of his era, the prime mover in beginning the theological college that would become Regent’s Park College, Oxford, and the first London Baptist pastor to offer active support of the fledgling Baptist Missionary Society. Yet, curiously, not since the early nineteenth century has the set of works by Abraham Booth been in print. The standard edition at that time, and down to the present day, was The Works of Abraham Booth (London: W. Button & Sons, 1813), which was issued in 3 volumes. This first volume contains Booth’s sermons from this three-volume set, all of them from Volume 3 of that set. It also contains sermons found in various issues of The Baptist Magazine and Booth’s confession of faith given at the time of his ordination on February 16, 1769. There is much in this volume to edify the people of God. Quality bound in Grade B red cloth vellum with black spine label and gold stamping and acid free paper. 263 pages, fully indexed.

The First London Confession of Faith, 1646 Edition. With an Appendix by Benjamin Cox.
Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin.
William L. Lumpkin in his Baptist Confessions of Faith stated that “Perhaps no Confession of Faith has had so formative an influence on Baptist life as this one.” We also believe its historical importance is second only to its Christ-centeredness. Some of the new features are a Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin, a facsimile copy of the original title page of the 1646 edition, and some additions to make the confession easier to use, including 1) giving each article in the confession an appropriate title, as suggested by other period confessions; 2) placing at the end of each article in the confession, after the scripture references, any corresponding reference to the appendix in bold print; 3) retaining unabridged the original wording, though with modern spelling, and any additions noted in brackets; 4) consistently capitalizing references to the Godhead; 5) making some slight additions to the punctuation for clarity; and 6) including a table of Contents. This booklet would be ideal for individual or group study or for a wider distribution. Paperback, 44 pages.
