Andrew Fuller & His Friends

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.
