Review of Calvinism and Communion in Victorian England
22nd Jun 2022
In the next few weeks we'll be featuring some of our books that we offer. This week's featured book is Calvinism and Communion in Victorian England, Studies in Nineteenth-Century Strict-Communion Baptist Ecclesiology, by Geoffrey R. Breed. This study illustrates tensions between Particular and Strict Baptists during the first quarter of Queen Victoria’s reign. Two hitherto untapped sources of Baptist history are explored: the Minutes of the London Association of Strict Baptist Ministers and Churches (LASBMC), 1846-1855 and the Ramsgate Chapel Case of 1862.
This book also re-examines the views of C. H. Spurgeon on the Communion issue in light of an interview he had late in his ministry with a Virginia Baptist pastor and contains a reprint of David Griffith’s outstanding treatise on “Baptist Associations and Articles of Belief” (1840), in which he argues the necessity of having stated doctrinal beliefs.
