To fulfill two of my determinations about reading, a) mixing older books into my reading schedule and b) not passing up good bargains in used book stores, this book found its way to my night stand over the last couple months. It is a 1925 Judson Press edition from the Northern Baptist Convention’s Missionary Board. That might have required a higher price from me in order to read but when I looked at the Contents I succumbed: Roger Williams; William Carey; Adoniram Judson; Ann Judson; William Knibb; and a few others. For a couple of dollars I lost some good sleep but gained some sweet dreams. Where else could I find a biography of Wm. Knibb, print shop apprentice to J.G. Fuller, son of Andrew Fuller in Kettering, Northamptonshire, baptized by John Ryland, Sr. and early appointee to the West Indies by the Baptist Missionary Society which had just sent Wm. Carey to India? That’s what I thought too.
