'The first full study of a key figure in the development of English Baptists', B.R. White
Publishers Description A leading exponent of the new moderate Calvinism which brought new life to many Baptists, John Rippon (1751-1836) helped unite the Baptists at this significant time. His many writings expressed the denomination's growing maturity and mutual awareness of Baptists in Britain and America, and exerted a long-lasting influence on Baptist worship and devotion.Reared in the West Country and trained at Bristol Academy, Rippon served for over sixty years at the London church where John Gill had been minister. With a keen sense of English Protestant history, which he helped preserve, and an active leadership in many Baptist organisations, Rippon helped conserve the heritage of Old Dissent and stimulated the evangelicalism of the New Dissent.
