Format: Paperback
My Thanksgiving-break book this year was Paul Brewster's fascinating Andrew Fuller: Model Pastor-Theologian, a selection in B&H's "Studies In Baptist Life and Thought" series. Fuller's is a name you encounter increasingly these days (as evidenced, for instance, by "The Works of Andrew Fuller Project"and "The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies"), and those familiar with the theological, ecclesial, and denominational frictions within the Southern Baptist Convention will understand why.

Andrew Fuller was a British Baptist pastor and theologian (largely self-taught) who exerted a marked influence over the Baptist church which he pastored and the association of which he was an important part. (As an aside, Brewster's description of the heightened collegiality of British associationalism was quite insightful). So great was his influence, that one historian claimed he achieved a kind of de facto bishopric in the area. His was a ministry characterized by great fruit and great controversy, the latter likely being the reason for the renewed interest in Fuller today.

Essentially, Andrew Fuller pushed back against the "High Calvinism" (read, "hyper-Calvinism") of John Brine and John Gill. I do understand that the contention that Gill was "hyper" in his Calvinism is hotly disputed. It is possible that Brine's presentation of Gill's thought gave rise to the assumption. It is also possible that Gill was, in fact, a hyper-Calvinist. I'll leave that to others to decide.

The hyper-Calvinism of Fuller's day had essentially suffocated evangelistic efforts among 18th century British Baptists. Gospel appeals to the lost were expressly avoided unless a lost person gave some evidence of a "warrant," or indication that they might be among the elect.

Here is a great book on Andrew Fuller. Fuller was the man who "held the ropes" for William Carey and the other Baptist missionaries whom God used to launch the Great Century of Christian Missions. The focus of the book is on his role as pastor and theologian, and Fuller is truly a model to follow.

This was a book for TRs (truly reformed). It would help someone seeking info about Fuller's doctrinal convictions. But it lacked all of the personal information needed to make Fuller and his times come alive. I like good history. I love good biographies, but this was just information.
