9th Jun 2016

As the pastor of the First Baptist Church of the City of New York during the antebellum, William Parkinson (1774-1848) exerted significant influence as a preacher, theologian and scholar which extended not only to Baptists, but also Christianity in general. This was particularly the case with his seminal commentary on Deuteronomy 33. However, Parkinson’s effectiveness muted due largely to impulsive and careless behavior which nearly cost him his ministry. Nevertheless, as the essay in this volume will highlight, Parkinson rendered invaluable service to the Church as both an eloquent spokesman and continual recipient of God’s redeeming grace. --AG
