I received the following news from Chris Chun, member of The Elephant of Kettering blog:
He has finally submitted his PhD dissertation (260 pages). The thesis is entitled: “The Greatest Instruction Received from Human Writings: The Legacy of Jonathan Edwards in the Theology of Andrew Fuller.” The only thing left is the oral defense (viva) of his thesis, which is scheduled in June of 2008. To add to this great news, he has been appointed professor of Church History at Golden Gate Theological Seminary in San Francisco, CA.
Many congratulations to this excellent up and coming Church historian and Fuller lover!
Google Books is a really, really cool thing. What could possibly be better than zillions of free books, with more being added all the time? Well, besides print copies of zillions of free books . . .
While web-surfing this evening, I discovered that several 19th century biographies of Andrew Fuller are available at Google Books:
John Ryland Jr., The Work of Faith, the Labour of Love, and the Patience of Hope, illustrated; In the Life and Death of the Rev. Andrew Fuller, Late Pastor of the Baptist Church at Kettering, and Secretary to the Baptist Missionary Society, From its Commencement, in 1792 (Charlestown: Printed by Samuel Etheridge, 1818).
J. W. Morris, Memoirs of the Life and Writings of the Rev. Andrew Fuller, Late Pastor of the Baptist Church at Kettering, and First Secretary to the Baptist Missionary Society, First American, from the last London edition, ed. Rufus Babcock (Boston: Lincoln and Edmonds, 1830).
Andrew Gunton Fuller, Men Worth Remembering: Andrew Fuller (London: Houghton and Stoddard, 1882).
These fine works are of course in addition to the dozens and dozens of Fuller’s written works that are available on Google Books. What a tremendous resource for pastors, students, scholars, and anyone else interested in the life and writings of Andrew Fuller.
The Liam Goligher Lectures are available online now from the annual Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies conferece held in Cambridge, ON on Saturday.
