Andrew Fuller & His Friends Conference

Banner-Andrew-Fuller-and-his-Friends-1024x213

The audio is now available from the 6th Andrew Fuller Conference, “Andrew Fuller & His Friends.” Here is what the conference was all about:

It is not every Baptist theologian who has a movement named after him, but Andrew Fuller was so important a theologian that historians of the church actually talk about a perspective called “Fullerism.” Fuller’s views, though, were not the product of simply his own theological reflection, but were formulated by him in dialogue with a close circle of friends and subsequent joint action with these friends, especially in missionary endeavors. This year The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies is thrilled to devote its annual conference to thinking about Fuller’s friends: their lives and ministries and how they shaped and were shaped by Fuller, whom later generations called “the elephant of Kettering”-a reference to his weighty theological influence. Come and join us this September as we spend time and energy in thinking about a past Christian thinker and his circle of friends whose influence for good and for the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus has been enormous.

New Calvinism Considered by Jeremy Walker [Audio + PDF]

New Old Calvinism

“I was invited to address the topic at a sister church in the US, which I sought to do. Following on from that, I was asked to put that material in print, to which I replied, ‘Tricky, as it’s only a series of headers with a few notes on a sheet of paper.’ The upshot was that the original address got transcribed, and I got round – eventually – to editing it. I used the substance of that address recently for a series of adult Bible classes in the church which I serve, and it provoked a lot of profitable engagement. And, now, finally, I am posting it here in its slightly more polished, slightly less personable form.”

– Pastor Jeremy Walker
