Fuller, Andrew

(1754–1815)
   Theologian.
   Fuller was born in Cambridgeshire, England, and was ordained a Baptist minister at the age of twenty-one. He was self-educated, but he made an extensive study of the Scriptures and of the work of thinkers such as Jonathan edwards. His book The Gospel Worthy of All Acceptance, published in 1785, created considerable controversy among the Baptists and did much to break down the extreme Calvinism among them. However, it also caused some Baptist leaders to break off and form their own Strict and Particular Baptist denomination. Fuller was an important influence on William carey and from 1792 until the year of his death, he was secretary of the Baptist Missionary Society.
