ANDREW FULLER'S EPITAPH

On the “Epitaph” erected in memory of Andrew Fuller (1754-1815), he was remembered for:

“His ardent Piety,
The strength and soundness of his Judgment,
His intimate knowledge of the human heart,
And his profound acquaintance with the Scriptures.”

It was these things, the “Epitaph” went on to say, that “eminently qualified him for the Ministerial Office.” In a nutshell we have here what early nineteenth-century Baptists viewed as vital for the task of pastoral ministry.

Brother,

You're looking more and more like Fuller everyday (profile pic). You may want to come out of the study for a while and get some sunshine. Never mind, you're in Toronto.

Strange how you get like those you associate with! But I could do a lot worse, couldn't I? To spend time in Fuller's compnay is to walk with a great saint of God.

True! I'm already noticing that I'm beginning to look like Hercules (Collins, that is!).

BTW, I'm looking forward to reading The Armies of the Lamb! Thanks for requiring it for your class this Summer.
