One of the earliest Baptist voices and martyr for his faith, Thomas Helwys was the first permanent Baptist and founder of the first Baptist church in England. He is best known for his seminal work on religious liberty, A Short Declaration of the Mystery of Iniquity. Helwys’s other extant writings include full length theological treatises, personal letters and the first known English Baptist Confession of Faith. These works demonstrate his theological shift from English Separatism to recognizable Baptist tenets. His body of work clearly espouses religious liberty, priesthood of all believers, soul competency, a reverence for the bible, and the autonomy of the local church. In Thomas Helwys: Life and Writings, Joe Early has provided the reader with a concise theological biography of Helwys and a compilation of all his extant writings. It is the first time that all of Thomas Helwys’s writings having been available in one volume.
