The History of the English Baptists,
FROM THE REFORMATION TO THE BEGINNING
OF THE REIGN OF KING GEORGE I - Volume 1
What's on this Page:
This volume (and the remaining volumes) by Thomas Crosby was published in 1738 in response to a History of the Puritans by Rev. Neal, in which the part of the dissenting Baptists was largely ignored and/or criticized by the Paedobaptist author in favour of Presbyterianism dissent. Indeed, Neal and his Paedobaptist brethren viewed the Baptists as being in grave error.
Crosby seeks to present the history of English Baptistic thought and the rise of the Baptist denominations (both General and Particular) from the earliest times in England. In doing so, he begins with an overview of Baptist history, including the persecution suffered by the early English Baptists, before providing some biographical material on the early Baptists.
