Paternoster Press, 2009. Paper. English.

This is done by investigating his relationship with the tradition of the church, his interaction with federalism, and his concept of baptism. Riker presents Keach, and thus the Baptist tradition, in a new way: not as a "Calvinist" tradition but as part of the broad Reformed family. Second, believer's baptism, the rite from which the Baptists derive their name, is systematically scrutinized against . . . (more)

This collection of essays fills a much needed gap by examining the major area of Fuller's thought, his work as an apologist. The book argues that the New Testament exegesis, which is at the heart of this reformation, is fundamentally . . . (more)
