The Origin of The Baptists | S. H. Ford – A Review

Filed under: Bruce — pilgrimskeyboard @ 3:43 pm

The Origin of The Baptists – Samuel Howard Ford (1819-1905) | I enjoy reading old books. I enjoy reading about Christian history. Especially those of old Baptists. In some of my Baptist history books I will find where the author will quote or make reference to S. H. Ford’s The Origin of the Baptists. So it was exciting when I came across a used copy of this book on Amazon.com [copyright 1950 – Baptist Sunday School Committee]. Ford wrote his book sometime around 1860 (J. R. Graves, “Introduction” date). The premise of the book is found in his query: “Where Did the Baptists Come From?” He begins his quest by looking at the Baptist in Virginia and then moves through the different centuries and ends up in the NT at Jesus Christ, the founder of Baptist churches. I highly recommend old history books concerning the Lord’s NT churches and Christianity. I think you would enjoy reading this little book.The Origin of the Baptists - S.H. Ford
