    or go to www.thebaptistpage.com and follow the history links, I believe you can find it there. I too have read Carroll's book, and have a copy. I think the problem with it is that it was originally a series of sermons and not intended for publication. I think I read somewhere that he passed on before its publication.

    Whether or not I don't know.

    I do agree with it, but I believe the reader must go beyond Bro. Carroll to be sure; Carroll, IMO, only wets the appetite. But he gives enough information that the serious student will have no problem in pursuing a personal investigation.

    Now, rsr, why in the world would you ever disagree with Bro. Carroll? At least his work does mention the blood. :D

    just kidding,
    God Bless.

    Dallas, I think you are right about Bro. Carroll's death before publication; apparently he gave the right to publish to J.W. Porter.

    Trail of Blood history

    The quotes that are listed on this page show some of the weaknesses of the work. The quote from Cardinal Hosius is especially egregious; we know that no one was called Baptist before the 17th century, and the early Baptists didn't refer to themselves by that name; if he actually wrote something like this, he must have meant Anabaptists.

    As I've said, I cannot reject everything in the book; but the links are tenuous and unproven, and the links are more a leap of faith than anything else.

    Smith and Helwys, we know, would only go as far with successionism as being spiritual, not historical.

    But then, on this, like many other things, I could be entirely wrong ... [​IMG]

    I don't mean to change the focus of this thread, but could you give me a link from the web to these authors? If there is one.

    At the moment I am involved with this debate personally and would like to be able to further research it. I have never read either of the two authors you mention.

    I don't mean to say that I would then accept as fact that successionism is merely spiritual.


    Your assistance and especially prayers will be much appreciated.

    God Bless
    Bro. Dallas

    The only reference I've found is to a 1999 reprint offered by the Christian Book Gallery, for which I can't find a site. One reference listsa phone number (219) 365-4905 and an address of 9066 Knickerbocker, St. John, Indiana 46373.

    I have no way to verify this information, but you might check on it.
