Baptist Quarterly, January 2010

Visionary Women Among Early Baptists – Curtis W. Freeman

Henry Jacob (1563-1624): Pastoral Theology and Congregational Ecclesiology – Jason G. Duesing

Humphrey Gillet: Signatory of a Testimony to Truth (1659) – Larry J. Kreitzer

The French Baptist Historical Society – David Boydell

Reviews include Under the Rule of Christ: Dimensions of Baptist Spirituality edited by Paul S. Fiddes and Challenging to Change: dialogues with a radical Baptist theologian edited by Pieter J. Lalleman.

[note to Ian Randall, Baptist Quarterly editor – it would be great to see some extended review articles of key recent British Baptist theology or maybe even an occasional issue dedicated to a book with opportunity for response, like Pro Ecclesia have done with Steven Harmon’s Towards Baptist Catholicity.  I would also encourage the Baptist Quarterly to do the occasional themed issue (like the one on children back in 1966 or women in 1986)]
