Andrew Fuller (1754-1815), the leading Baptist theologian of the late eighteenth century, is also the main purveyor of Edwardseanism in the British Isles in the same era. Despite criticism Fuller unabashedly promoted an Edwardsean view of conversion, revival, mission, and biography. This lecture will particularly examine the way that Fuller’s memoir of his close friend Samuel Pearce is replete with Edwardsean themes.
