The Collected Writings of James Leo Garrett Jr., 19502015

Volume One: Baptists, Part I
  • By Wyman Lewis Richardson, James Leo Garrett
  • Foreword by Malcolm B. Yarnell
James Leo Garrett, Jr. has been called ""the last of the gentlemen theologians"" and ""the dean of Southern Baptist theologians."" In The Collected Writings of James Leo Garrett, Jr., 1950-2015, the reader will find a truly dazzling collection of works that clearly evince the meticulous scholarship, the even-handed treatment, the biblical fidelity, the wide historical breadth, and the honest sincerity that have made the work and person of James Leo Garrett, Jr. so esteemed and revered among so many. The first two volumes of the series explore Dr. Garrett's writings on the experience, history, and lives of Baptist Christians, and this inaugural volume specifically considers Baptists, Baptist views of the Bible, and Anabaptists. Spanning sixty-five years and touching on topics from Baptist history, theology, ecclesiology, church history and biography, religious liberty, Roman Catholicism, and the Christian life, The Collected Writings of James Leo Garrett, Jr., 1950-2015 will inform and inspire readers regardless of their religious or denominational affiliations. Back Cover: ""James Leo Garrett, Jr. is one of the most consequential Baptist theologians of our time and this collection of his published writings is a great gift to all those who study the people of God called Baptists. Both the breadth of Garrett's vision, and the depth of his spirituality and churchmanship, shine through in each section of this impressive anthology."" --Timothy George, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University ""For those of us who embrace Baptist heritage and identity, these volumes summarize our history, convictions, and aspirations. They provide a framework for celebrating Garrett's contribution to theological thought, but more importantly, honor God for gifting the Church with such a profound intellectual leader. You will be taught, encouraged, and challenged by interacting with the breadth of doctrinal insight in these volumes."" --Jeff Iorg, Gateway Seminary ""James Leo Garrett, Jr. is one of Southern Baptists' most distinguished and important theologians in the latter half of the twentieth century. His impact is difficult to put into words. It would be a tragedy if future generations were not exposed to the wisdom and theological insights of this faithful servant of the Church of the Lord Jesus. This project will ensure that does not happen. How grateful I am for it."" --Daniel L. Akin, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Inside Cover: ""The first volume of The Collected Writings of James Leo Garrett Jr. is a marvelous gift for a new generation of students as well as all who are interested in Baptist and evangelical history. Wyman Richardson is to be commended and congratulated for his coordination of this valuable project. This collection makes available the most significant writings from the premier Southern Baptist theologian over the second half of the twentieth century. Readers will be introduced to the important themes of Baptist theology and Baptist history that have shaped Garrett's careful thinking and thoughtful writings through the years."" --David S. Dockery, Trinity International University/Trinity Evangelical Divinity School ""Passing by an encyclopedia of church history in my library the other day, I had the thought, 'There is the mind of James Leo Garrett.' On the most important matters and in the extent to which he grasped the whole of Baptist and church history, I believe this to be one of the greatest gifts ever given to the Lord's church. Southwestern Seminary is forever in debt to this gracious Christian."" --Paige Patterson, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary James Leo Garrett, Jr., is Distinguished Professor of Theology, Emeritus, at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
