Benjamin Keach [1640-1704] was one of the most influential Baptists of the late 17th century, as the Baptists finally began to emerge from persecution as part of the "independent" protestant landscape in England and America. He himself had been fined and pilloried for the publication of a work questining the usefulness of baptism for children.

He was a prolific writer, with several of his works being almost continuously in print for the last 300 years. His church ultimately became the New Park Street Church which was later pastored by C. H. Spurgeon. He was the first Baptist to introduce and advocate for the use of hymns in public worship and published the Cathecism that attempted to clarify and expound the Baptist Confession of 1677.

The present work is exceptionally scarce, and a beautiful example of pure, Baptist Gospel sermons from the late 17th century.  No copies on the market at any price. We have not handled this book in the 25+ years we have been dealing in rare Baptist material.
