The Formation of the Primitive Baptist Movement, by Jeffrey W. Taylor
2004. 225 pp. ISBN: 1-894710-42-8
The primitive Baptists reacted against the incursion of modern theological and worship elements into their tradition, beginning in the 1830s. In The Formation of the Primitive Baptist Movement, Jeffrey W. Taylor documents the emergence and development of this "conservative" Believers Church tradition.
"Jeffrey Wayne Taylor's insightful treatment of the denomination's formative period makes a welcome addition to the literature on the movement, informing and challenging the Primitives, their students, and their critics." - Journal of Southern History
