Andrew Fuller

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Andrew Fuller's The Gospel of Christ Worthy of All Acceptation: Or the Obligations of Men Fully to Credit, and Cordially to Approve, Whatever God Makes Known (1785). Raised as a Particular Baptist, Fuller was a talented preacher and lay theologian. In November 1769 he had a conversion experience and joined the Particular Baptist church at Soham as a newly baptized member a year later. During his years at Soham, Fuller began studying Jonathan Edwards's Freedom of the Will, which liberated him from the vexing determinism that haunted his High Calvinistic heritage. From his careful reading of Freedom of the Will, Fuller arrived at the conclusion that Christians must preach the gospel message to all who will hear it, even if only certain people would respond favorably to God's grace.
