Overview

A study of the relation between religion and political thought during the English Revolution, Mark R. Bell's Apocalypse How? challenges early historical interpretations that portray the Baptists as politically inactive. This reexamination demonstrates that Baptists were close to the secular radicals who became known as the Levellers and to the more religious revolutionaries known as the Fifth Monarchists. The reintegration of the religious and political aspects of their thought reveals the Baptist movements to have been capable of generating support for both radical groups." "Bell discusses the transformation of Baptists from an aggressively critical sect to one more accomodating to its larger culture. Bell identifies this development with two changes in the Baptists' views of the end time. The first of these was an overall decline in eschatological enthusiasm during the 1640s, while the second was the way apocalyptic language among Baptists gradually came to refer more to endorsing society than to transforming it. This engaging study is a solid contribution to the historiography of the earliest Baptists and of religion in England during the tumultuous seventeenth century.

What People Are Saying

Alice Bach
B>Professor Alice Bach, Archbishop James A. Hallinan Chair in Catholic Studies Case Western Reserve University
After reading Mark Bell's book one remains unsure wherther he is a historian with a an interest in theology ora theologian with a sympthetic understanding of the weaknesses and strengths of historical research. This work will be essential for historians of religion, certainly, but also will raise important questions for theologians and Anglo-American cultural theorists.
Bill J. Leonard
Bill J. Leonard, Dean of the Divinity School Wake Forest University
...A well-written, well-documented story that provides information about early Baptist tha is not collected in one existing source.

    Brilliant young scholar writes accessible winner

    Why did the Associate Dean of one of the world's leading business schools read a book on the interplay of religion, history, and politics? I Chair Emory's Ethics Center, and Mark Bell is a young scholar who is being talked about. This book shows why: it is lucid, well-researched yet always engaging, and breaks original ground that taught me a lot about one of the world's great religions. Bell transcends narrow scholarship--his fertile mind and apt pen range impressively over many fields--to create and defend a useful new thesis. This book is clear and concise in its exposition, thus the wisdom and culture it imparts is worth the reader's investment.

    Religion and Revolution!

    Even though I am not a Baptist, I really enjoyed reading this book. I was interested to learn that there was such a diversity of opinion even among the earliest English Baptists. The author's discussion of the way in which some Baptists were more radical than others, and how various elements within the Baptists wanted to accomodate with society is well integrated into his analysis of the importance of apocalypticism. This was not only a highly enlightening book, but it is also well-written and easy to understand.
