Early Andrew Fuller Biographies Online

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.

John Piper on Andrew Fuller

I’ve been looking forward to this lecture ever since I heard that Piper was going to do it this year! It is now available for MP3 download. It is John Piper’s lecture on Andrew Fuller titled “Holy Faith, Worthy Gospel, World Vision: Andrew Fuller’s Broadsides Against Sandemanianism, Hyper-Calvinism, and Global Unbelief.” The manuscript is available online by clicking here.

Andrew Fuller and Confederate Soldiers

During the American Civil War, Baptists in the north and south published thousands of evangelistic tracts to be distributed among the soldiers. Among the many Confederate-produced tracts was one written by Andrew Fuller, “The Great Question Answered,” which is available in volume 3 of the Belcher edition of Fuller’s Works, pp. 540-549.

Fast forward to the present: one of the coolest websites online is the Documenting the American South project at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The purpose of the project is to make an ever-growing library of primary source material related to southern history available on the internet. Much of the material presently available relates to either race or the Civil War, including the Fuller tract. You can read the text of the tract here, and when you’re finished, do yourself a favor and do a search of the word “Baptist” on the project website; you will find all kinds of cool stuff.
