Ardent Love for Jesus
The eighteenth century began with the Calvinistic Baptists in poor condition. Small in number and despised, there seemed to be little hope for the future. Yet as the years passed by remarkable ministries arose and the Lord worked in wonderful ways. Michael Haykin plots the course of events, looking at figures such as Benjamin Francis and Anne Steele, John Sutcliff and the 'concert of prayer' and the theology of Andrew Fuller. This is not only history: the experiences of these Baptists has much to teach us today about our need of a work of God.
