Continuing our review of our latest book - God's Glory in Baptist History: A Memorial Volume for Terry Wolever, edited by Michael A. G. Haykin - today we are looking at The Life and Ministry of R. B. C. Howell (1801-1868), written by Thomas J. Nettles. The following is an excerpt from the chapter:
"In 1880, The Baptist Encyclopedia, edited by William Cathcart noted, 'He acquired the reputation of one of the most learned and eloquent divines in the country.' The article added, 'no one exercised a greater or more beneficial influence within or outside of the church. His life was unspotted; his Christian course was marked by the highest virtues. His courtesy and kindness of heart made him a universal favorite, notwithstanding the fierce theological debates in which he was often engaged.' Howell was a 'thorough Baptist, and always jealous of the fair name of his denomination.' "
