Andrew Fuller - 'English Baptist Divine'

"Andrew Fuller’s work … made perhaps the most notable contribution towards providing a missionary theology and incentive for world evangelism in the midst of a people both Calvinistic and Church oriented. He helped to link the earlier Baptists, whose chief concern was the establishment of ideal New Testament congregations, with those in the nineteenth century driven to make the gospel known worldwide. His contribution helped to guarantee that many of the leading Baptists of the 1800s would typify evangelism and world missions. Charles Spurgeon and J.P. Boyce would be fervent evangelical Calvinists…"

The two previous quotes mark what makes Andrew Fuller so very important. He proved to his peers and Baptists to come that solid theology and evangelism go hand in hand. For that alone, we owe him a great debt!

Several editions of his collected works have appeared, and a Memoir, principally compiled from his own papers, was published about a year after his decease by Dr Ryland, his most intimate friend and coadjutor in the affairs of the Baptist mission. There is also a biography by the Reverend J W Morris (1816); and his son prefixed a memoir to an edition of his chief works in Bohn’s Standard Library (1852).
