Is there anything online concerning the book: "A History of the Baptists"?
The feminist theologian? (Kidding.) Seriously, I quoted something from that book of Armitage's at someone on another board one time, in support of ordaining female deacons, and my interlocutor (I'm guessing it was Mark Osgatharp?) was less than charitable in his characterization of Mr. Armitage.
Thanks. I am reading and reviewing a series of articles on "old landmarkism" and there are several references to Armitage.
Brother Dallas... I know nothing of this book but could this be the online site?... Brother Glen & Sister Charlotte
Thanks Brother Glen,
That site does have Armitage's work (the section of Baptist's in America).
It also has other links to histories, like that of the Welsh Baptists.
Armitage's history of Baptists was reprinted by Maranatha Baptist College in Watertown, Wisconsin. Would suggest you contact them for copies and web-availability.
As a proud alumnus of the school (as are Squire, SuperDave, Circuitrider and all three of my children) I am thankful that they saw this out-of-print classic as needed in the body and applaud that forsight.
Thanks for the link, Bro. Glenn.
I don't have Armitage, haven't found it in any used book sales. I do have a history of the Baptists that was printed in 1848. Don't remember the author, and the book is in my office at church right now.
Hey Dr. Bob, I haven't heard from anyone from Maranatha in quite a while. Is Dr. Cedarholm still around? He is a much admired and respected person.
Do you have any contact information?
It is with great regret that I must write that Dr. Cedarholm went home quite a few years back. As for the book(s) in question, I highly recommend them. It's a two volume set. Brother Armitage was one of the first "modern" Baptist historians. The books were written in the IIRC 1870's. I don't have my set at hand so I will check out the date when I have access to them. That being said, Brother Armitage was what I would call a Regular Northern Baptist. He lived and ministered outside the direct influence of the SBC. So, his conclusions were drawn independently of the tides and shoals of the SBC.
