Sestercentennial book on Carey

I am working with Nathan Finn (of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary), Samuel Masters (the Rector of Seminario Bíblico William Carey,Córdoba, Argentina), Ryan West (one of our PhD students), Kieran Beville (pastor of Lee Valley Bible Church, Ireland), Chisso Wang (studying at Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College), and Jack Chen (of Carey Baptist Church, Kolkata) on a new book about William Carey to be published by BorderStone Press later this summer. It will be entitled Carey our contemporary: reflections on his thought and mission, and will involve an examination of his Enquiry, his preaching in India, his evangelization of Muslims, and the current need of India. We will include his Moulton and Leicester Church Covenants (very hard to find), the Serampore Form of Agreement, and possibly some of his hymns (just found out from Jack Chen about Carey’s hymns in Bengali).

It is being released to celebrate the sestercentennial of Carey’s birth in 1761.
