Description

Excerpt from Baptist Biography, Vol. 1 The plan upon which Baptist Biography is being published is co-operative. Leading Baptists, preachers and laymen, have been invited to furnish brief data on their lives and work. Some one best qualified, by reason of his acquaintance With the character and work of the subject, was requested to prepare the sketch from the data furnished. The subjects of these sketches are, therefore, in no way responsible for what is said Of them. While the manu scripts have been carefully edited, the authors have been permit ted to give their own estimate of the subjects. If the sketches are not true to the character and life Of the subjects the authors are responsible. The number of authors Of these Sketches is nearly equal to the number Of subjects; hence, a great variety Of style will be Oh Served, which will lend interest to the reading. In most cases much more might have been said concerning the ancestry, youth, education and achievements of the subjects. It would require a Whole volume to do justice to some of the men, but for the sake of brevity every sketch has been reduced to the minimum. It has been the aim Of the publishers from the start to present the chief characteristics and labors of leading Baptists, and to give to the public a work which it will appreciate. This first vol ume is a prophecy Of what the succeeding volumes will be, and is sent forth With the hope that it Will interest and inspire this and future generations.
