“THE GLORIOUS WORK OF THE REFORMATION”: ANDREW FULLER AND THE IMITATION OF MARTIN LUTHER

by MICHAEL A. G. HAYKIN in Vol. 3 No. 1 / Apr 2017



Abstract
While a high view of the life and work of Martin Luther was maintained only in certain quarters of Anglophone Christianity by the close of the seventeenth century, the eighteenth-century Evangelical revival led to a profound rediscovery of him. This article examines the way one such Evangelical, the Baptist Andrew Fuller, who does not appear to have read Luther directly, regularly cited him as a model to be imitated when it came to preaching and courageous action.
