Overview

Thomas Crosby, known for being the first English Baptist historian, took on the task of canvassing the history of the English Baptists from the sixteenth century until the mid-eighteenth century. In this 4-volume set, beginning with the Reformation, Crosby expounds on the persecution and growth of the Church. He also details aspects of the Baptist faith and eloquently responds to criticisms of the Baptist doctrine during the two hundred year span which The History of the English Baptists covers.

The timeframe spanning from Wycliffe to the reign of Queen Anne is broken up into four parts in this collection, published first in 1739, then again in 1739 and 1740. Thomas Crosby’s brother-in-law, a lesser known and unpublished Baptist historian named Mr. Stinton, assisted him in gathering materials for The History of the English Baptists.

Rich in historical detail, this set will add dimension to your Logos library. Crosby's insight and influence are a valuable addition to any church history collection.
