The Dissenters Volume III

Michael R. Watts

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the influence Baptist George Dawson, who established his own church in Birmingham in 1847 — the Church of the Saviour — from which to preach his message that Christian charity is more important than Evangelical orthodoxy, and that it is a Christian's duty to engage in politics. Both his religious and his political affinities were with the Unitarians, and especially with the intuitive school of James Martineau.

Keywords:   Baptists, Church of the Saviour, Christian charity, politics, Unitarians, James Martineau
