Description

This study traces one of the major groups of English religious dissenters by studying the life and controversies surrounding one of the group's principal figures. As the acknowledged leader of Baptists from around 1675 to his death in 1704, Keach helped establish many of the theological positions of Baptists. His greatest accomplishment was the reintroduction of congregational hymn-singing among English Protestants. This look at Baptists and dissenters of 17th-century England is based on Keach's 35 books and pamphlets, as well as the writings of those who opposed him.

Contents

Introduction to the 17th-century situation; a life of controversy; Keach and the tenets of being Baptist; development and controversy concerning congregational song.
