A good death was as central to Methodism as conversion and holiness. Based on an analysis of 1,200 obituaries, this book contributes to an understanding not only of death but of the history of Methodist and evangelical Nonconformist piety, theology, social background and literary expression in mid-nineteenth-century England, and focuses on the tension in Nonconformist allegiance to both worldly and spiritual matters.

Baptists in America began the eighteenth century a small, scattered, often harassed sect in a vast sea of religious options. By the early nineteenth century, they were a unified, powerful, and rapidly-growing denomination, poised to send missionaries to the other side of the world. One of the most influential yet neglected leaders in that transformation was Oliver Hart, longtime pastor of the Charleston Baptist Church. Oliver Hart and the Rise of Baptist America is the first modern biography of Hart, arguably the most important evangelical leader in the pre-Revolutionary South. During his thirty years in Charleston, Hart emerged as the region's most important Baptist denominational architect. His outspoken patriotism forced him to flee Charleston when the British army invaded Charleston in 1780, but he left behind a southern Baptist people forever changed by his energetic ministry. Hart's accommodating stance toward slavery enabled him and the white Baptists who followed him to reach the center of southern society, but also eventually doomed the national Baptist denomination of Hart's dreams. More than a biography, Oliver Hart and the Rise of Baptist America seamlessly intertwines Hart's story with that of eighteenth-century American Baptists, providing one of the most thorough accounts to date of this important and understudied religious group's development. This book makes a significant contribution to the study of Baptist life and evangelicalism in the pre-Revolutionary South and beyond.

J. M. Carroll's excellent history of the Baptist church and movement illustrates events over the centuries, with references to a chart appended at the beginning of the book. First released in 1931, Carroll's superb church history attracted great praise for successfully summarizing all major events and turning points in the history of Baptism. The author sets out his work chronologically, from the time Jesus Christ lived and died upon the cross in 25 - 35 A.D., to the initial manifestations of organised Christianity, its growth during the Dark Ages, the Reformation, and finally the 19th and 20th centuries. Named ""The trail of blood,"" for the amount of hatred and persecution Baptists had endured over the ages, this book sets out to demonstrate how Baptism grew from a small niche of believers into an accepted movement firmly in the mainstream of Christian faith. Carroll identifies and explains a number of violent persecutions by the Roman Catholic Church, which disagreed broadly with Baptist doctrine.
