16th Jun 2021

In the weeks ahead, we will be turning our attention to the all-new forthcoming title from Particular Baptist Press:  Ministers of the Philadelphia Baptist Association, 1707-1872. A Biographical Notebook, compiled and edited by the late Terry Wolever. 

B. H. Carroll described the Philadelphia Baptist Association as “the Mother Eve of American Associations.” Within the first fifty years of its founding (1707-1757), the Philadelphia Association had instituted all of the key elements common to evangelical Baptists today: evangelism, church-planting, confessional standards, missions, educational institutions, denominational publications, and an active concern for civil and religious liberty. “The influence of the Philadelphia Association has been greater in shaping Baptist modes of thinking and working, than any other body in existence,” wrote one historian.

This book is currently at the printers and will be released next month, Lord willing. Keep checking back as we review the contents of this important work in Baptist history.
