Item Description...
This book, first published in the 1820s by author John Taylor, a pioneer Baptist farmer-preacher, has long been recognized as an indispensible source for first-hand information about the religious life of the early American frontier. In his history Taylor recounted the experiences of Baptists in Virginia who championed the cause of religious liberty. He then chronicled the movement of many of those Baptists, including himself, to the wilderness of central and northern Kentucky where their church communities both struggled and flourished. Taylor's vivid accounts are filled with colorful descriptions of church life, including revivalistic experiences and doctrinal debates; the challenges of being a minister, including coping with meager resources and mediating disagreements; and the problems of rural living, including the dilemma of slavery and property disputes. Chester Raymond Young has overcome the difficulties faced by the modern reader in deciphering the anacronisms, obscurities, and idiosyncrasies of Taylor's narrative. Young's edition, the first ever annotated one, features a logical division of Taylor's sentences and paragraphs, a full bibliography of relevant historical works, tables outlining frontier religious rhetoric, and an extensive system of annotation that clarifies and corrects Taylor's account.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
John Taylor's biography & book: humble Pioneer Gospel Genius  Mar 8, 2000
The biography of Pioneer Baptist preacher, John Taylor (1752-1835, Virginia-Kentucky) was superbly researched and written by Chester Raymond Young, the editor. His annotation of John's pithy, and sometimes rambling discourse, on his 10 Baptist Churches in the Bluegrass and Ohio R. region of early Kentucky, really helps one to understand the history of the pioneer settlers. By reading the biography first, one gains a much deeper appreciation of who the people and family members are, whom John Taylor mentions in his book. This is a treasure trove for both geneologists and students of religion.
