Peter Toon Resources

May 1, 2009

Peter Toon (1939-2009) was a priest in the Chuch of England and an excellent theologian and historian. Many of his books (if not all) are available here. I would highly recommend all of his material but would particulalry direct you to his book, The Emergence of Hyper-Calvinism in English Non-Conformity, 1689-1765, originally published in 1967. It is an excellent work. Obviously he was not perfect and I do not agree with all of his theological/historical conclusions but this is an excellent resource for pastors and academics alike.

Paul Helm on John Gill

February 2, 2009

Over at Paul Helm’s Blog, Helm’s Deep, he has some interesting posts on the issue of John Gill (1697-1771) and Hyper-Calvinism. See his first post, The Gift of Gill, and his second, Nemo obligatur ad impossibile. This is shaping up to be a good series on this great but much neglected Baptist theologian.
