Hercules Collins-Baptist Pastor-Theologian

February 2, 2008

Friends of Baptist History! If you want to know more of Hercules Collins, the important but little known early Particular Baptist pastor visit my friend Steve Weaver’s site dedicated to him at HerculesCollins.com. Steve is working on Collins for his ThM thesis under Michael Haykin at Toronto Baptist Seminary and has plans to go on and do his PhD in Baptist History as well at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has also co-edited a book on Collins called Devoted to the Service of the Temple: Piety, Persecution, and Ministry in the Writings of Hercules Collins. It is co-edited with Michael Haykin and can be purchased from the publisher, Reformation Heritage Books.

I look forward to learning more about this great man from the able hands of Steve Weaver! Keep up-to-date on his studies and on Collins through his new site. I know I will!

All of you Baptist Historians out there. Make sure you check out Steve Weaver’s blog. He is doing his Th.M. under Michael Haykin at Toronto Baptist Seminary and is studying Collins. Collins, a 17th century Baptist, is much neglected in Baptist studies. Read his introductory post to Collins and keep on the look out on more about Collins to come!
