In light of this Friday’s release of the book which I co-edited with Dr. Michael Haykin, I have decided to post a few blurbs over the next few days from “Devoted to the Service of the Temple”: Persecution, Piety, and Ministry in the Writings of Hercules Collins. The first, which was posted Tuesday, was from Dr. R. Albert Mohler, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. Yesterday’s blurb was from the Rev. Geoff Thomas, pastor of Alfred Place Baptist Church in the UK. Today’s blurb is an excerpt from the Foreward written by Dr. James Renihan. Dr. Renihan is the Academic Dean of The Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies on the campus of Westminster Seminary California. Near the end of his Foreward, Renihan writes:
“We are indebted to Michael Haykin and Steve Weaver for these carefully chosen selections …. For too long Baptists have had little access to the richness of their theological tradition. We have a great past, and many able servants have given their lives to the cause of our churches, and yet so few of their works have been reprinted. This book continues a very encouraging recent trend, in which the best works are being restored to print. May the Lord bless this book, and the efforts of its editors.” From the Foreward by JAMES M. RENIHAN
“Devoted to the Service of the Temple”, a 160 page paperback, is published by Reformation Heritage Books and will retail for $10.00. It will be available to be purchased online from RHB’s online store for approx. $7.50.
