In his day, practicing English pastor Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was also themost prominent Baptist theologian on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. He remained influential via his thoughtful writings up until the American CivilWar. Since then, however, the emphasis on theological and doctrinal depth in Baptist preaching (and preaching generally) has been in decline.
Now scholars are looking back at Fuller to provide an example of howpastors can relate doctrine to practice. He was not content to contribute to theological debate in print only; he also showed how the theological conclusions he had arrived at could be applied to local church ministry.
This pastoral biography of Andrew Fuller, the second in B&H PublishingGroup's Studies in Baptist Life & Thought series, introduces a new preachinggeneration to his theological method, his soteriology, and how Fullerintentionally moved from doctrine to practice among the church.
