The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes

Thabiti Anyabwile, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman joins the panel to discuss Lemuel Haynes and black theology. Anyabwile has edited May We Meet in the Heavenly World, a book of Haynes writings which includes a helpful biography. Haynes (1753-1833) was an influential African-American pastor during the American Revolution. He was a devoted Calvinist who argued against slavery through the lens of God’s providence. Haynes was a well-known preacher and writer during his lifetime, but unfortunately, many have forgotten him in recent years. Join us for an interesting discussion of the life and thought of Lemuel Haynes.
