    Piety, Persecution, and Ministry in the Writings of Hercules Collins

    Hercules Collins is not a name that most people , theologians, and/or church historians are familiar with. Apart from recognizing that Hercules has a really cool name, you may not know anything about him. There is much to learn from Hercules Collins' life and ministry. If you are a Baptist you definitely need to be acquainted with him. Collins was a leading figure within the Particular Baptist movement. Collins was the fifth signatory upon the 1689 London Baptist Confession. Collins' life and ministry is a model in regards to piety in the midst of several persecutions. Likewise, Collins' writings are both deep theologically and reflect a deep passion to know Christ more intimately. Haykin and Weaver's book briefly outlines Collins' life and gives selected excerpts from his writings. Each chapter or section generally consists of about a page to two pages from his works. The excerpts that the editors chose to use were wonderfully selected. There are a wide range of issues that whet the appetite of those who may desire to know more about the Baptist heritage. One very interesting issue which Collins' discusses is the eternal state of dying infants. The London Baptist Confession argues that only "elect" infants, who die in infancy, will be saved. Collins here argues that all infant inherit eternal life. Collins offers some very helpful advice in regards to expository preaching within the book. Also, Collins makes a great argument for the necessity of training up pastors within your congregation. There is also a section in the book titled "God is the Gospel.' If you read the heading (given by the editors) and then read the article, you would honestly think either John Piper wrote it or someone was borrowing heavily from John Piper. The similarities between the two can be seen when Collins declares,

    "There are many good objects in heaven and earth besides thee. There are angels in heaven and saints on earth. But, soul, what are these to thee? Heaven, without thy presence would be no heaven to me. A palace without thee, a crown without thee, cannot satisfy me. But with thee can I be content, though in a poor cottage."

    The similarities between the two are striking. Collins has a lot to say to pastors and homiletics. The book is phenomenal, easy to read, and extremely short. The reader is left longing for more of Collins by the end of the book. I would highly recommend this book to others who have a passion and zeal for church history. I would require this of any Baptist pastor, who is training for the ministry.
