"I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands." – Psalm 143:5
"Baptist history is important . . . for all Christians to know and understand their faith heritage . . . . As we look back at the struggles and joys of the Baptists in the past, connecting the church instituted in the New Testament with the faithful witnesses of the later generations, we gain an encouragement that the Lord is still working and using people for His glory. . . . Seeing church planters or small local churches birthing new congregations [is] exciting. Yet, . . . I was disappointed that I could not find a good history of the Baptists in Ohio, my home state. . . . Dr. Clossman did some groundbreaking research in tracking down primary documents, records and contemporary sources for his history. . . . Not only did [he] provide a good bibliography of material, but he also put together a fairly solid structural foundation for Baptist beginnings in Ohio." ---from Patrick Kennedy's Introduction to our latest book, A History of the Baptist Churches in Ohio, 1789-1907; With Particular Reference to the Ohio Baptist Convention, by Dr. Richard H. Clossman; edited by Patrick D. Kennedy and Terry L. Wolever.
