Most observers consider E. Y.

His book, The Axioms of Religion (1908) is considered his most-creative and most-enduring work. The book was received as virtual orthodoxy by Baptists around the world. Complete with a critical introduction, this volume sets a new standard in Mullins study and in the study of Baptist history by restoring Mullins to his rightful place.

The Collected Works of Hanserd Knollys: Pamphlets On Religion
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H933
ISBN: 9780881466102
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Hanserd Knollys was one of the most influential Baptists of the seventeenth century. University educated, he provided guidance for Baptists on many key issues that formed their identity. In debate with other religious leaders he defended conscious commitment to Christ by each individual, the congregational character of the church, and the necessity of religious liberty. In addition to these three foundational beliefs, Knollys provided guidance for early Baptists on debated issues of practice. He endorsed the value of learning from the writings of inspired women, he endorsed congregational singing, and he supported raising funds for the support of ministers. In all of these matters he provided precedents and strong arguments for Baptist practice. Knollys served as pastor of a local London congregation, extended Baptist influence through preaching tours and provided a high standard of education in the schools he organized and led.

Ben M. Bogard was the preeminent leader of Landmark Baptists during the first half of the twentieth century. He was the personification of polemics, engaging the political, cultural, and religious issues of his day. Whether he was debating Aimee Semple McPherson, accusing J. Frank Norris of failing to preach the fundamentals of the faith, campaigning to outlaw the teaching of evolution, or condemning the ecumenical movement, Bogard never ceased defining and defending his understanding of the true Christian faith. This book, the first scholarly biography of one of the most important Baptists in twentieth-century America, traces Bogard’s life as he rose to prominence, organized Landmark Baptists, created a seminary and publishing enterprise, and became the father of the modern Landmark Baptist movement.

Price: $35.00
The Forgotten Heritage if Baptist preaching is-so Thomas R. McKibbens argues- characterized equally by intellectual rigor and evangelistic warmth. It is the union of head and heart in the pulpit, conservative in theology yet liberal in spirit. Above all, it is gracious, born of the grace of God. The greatest Baptist preaching has done more than grow large churches; it has nourished strong Christians in the passion and depth of the gospel.

The Healer-Prophet William Marrion Branham : A Study of the Prophetic in American Pentecostalism
By author: C. Douglas Weaver
Product Code: P211
ISBN: 9780865547100
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
This study of William Marrion Branham’s ministry reveals much about the healing methodology of deliverance evangelists. Branham’s theology of healing highlights the widely accepted role of evangelists as mediators between God and the afflicted. In addition, some of his methods are still commonly practiced in healing revivalism. The dynamic growth of Pentecostalism in the twentieth century is a major feature of the modern religious scene. From its beginning, divine healing was recognized as a critical element of the Pentecostal movement. Branham is acknowledged as a leader of the healing revival movement. Although little known outside of the Pentecostal movement, his work had tremendous influence on the "prophetic" identity claimed by his contemporaries, today’s televagelists, and the whole of Pentecostalism itself.

Lee is the first scholar to investigate Smyth’s theology in this context.
