Pirate captive, itinerant minister, delegate to the newly formed Triennial Convention, hymnal author, inaugural president of the New Jersey Baptist State Convention, participant in the Sabbath Day Mail Controversy, and co-participant in the founding of the American and Foreign Bible Society. So reads the resume of Daniel Dodge (1775-1851), a key Baptist figure in early nineteenth-century America. We invite you to read about the life and work of a tireless pastor and statesman whose ministry significantly contributed to Baptist work of that era, and whose influence continued to be felt many years later through the activities of the institutions in which he served. --Jeffrey A. Waldrop
