  1. Thank you so much, Dr Clark. Looking forward to your introduction to Andreas Karlstadt, precursor of modern baptists.

    • Karlstadt was a radical, not a “Reformer” in the sense in which we usually use the term.

      Interesting that you should appeal to him. It is an indicator of the deep ambivalence that modern Baptists feel towards the Anabaptists since, though modern Baptists (from 1611) agree with the Anabaptists on baptism they reject the heretical Anabaptist Christology and other aspects of the early Anabaptist theology (E.g., the near universal Anabaptist rejection of the Reformation recovery of salvation sola gratia, sola fide).
