    Have any of you read High Church Baptists in the South: The Origin, Nature, and Influence of Landmarkism? It is by James E. Tull and published by Mercer University Press (2000). If so, I would be interested in your comments concerning it. Thanks.

    I found the following, showing this is a revision of Tull's 1960 work on Landmarkism. Still any comments would be appreciated. <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>James E. Tull’s study and critique of the history and teachings of Landmarkism has established itself as a classic treatment of this important movement. This present version of that study is the revised, condensed, and updated edition of Tull’s 1960 original. Tull did not finish the revision before he died in 1989, but Morris Ashcraft has now completed that task according to Tull’s directions and notes. Ashcraft has also added a helpful preface. With this new edition of Tull’s invaluable work on Landmarkism, a new generation of historians, students, and all seeking to understand Baptists have at hand a most helpful teacher: Tull on Landmarkism.

    James E. Tull (1913–1989) began his ministry as a pastor, and then earned a Ph.D. at Columbia (1960). For the second part of his life and for twenty-five years until his retirement he served as professor of Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina. His major work Shapers of Baptist Thought (Judson, 1972) was reissued by Mercer University Press in 1984. He contributed a historical introduction and summary critique to Are Southern Baptists Evangelicals? (Mercer, 1983). Mercer also published his The Atoning Gospel in 1982.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
