About the Author

ANDREW FULLER (1754-1815) was born in Wicken, Cambridgeshire, England. He was of Puritan descent and had a Christian upbringing. He grew up doing farm work, had no formal education, and was involved in many immoral activities. At age 16 he turned toward God and was baptized and joined the Baptist Church at Soham. When the speaker of the church meeting sprained his ankle Andrew was asked to read and "if he found liberty to drop any remarks." God's gifting was evident and years later (1774) he filled a ministry vacancy at Soham. The small congregation at Soham gave him opportunity to educate himself by reading books. Invitations from Kettering came and in 1782 he moved to the church in Kettering, Northamptonshire. He helped found the Baptist Missionary Society in 1792 with the shoemaker William Carey, and the zealous minister Samuel Pearce. He also had the advantage of relationships with John Newton, Thomas Scott and Legh Richmond.
