At The Funeral Of Mr. Henry Forty, Late Pastor Of A Church Of Christ, Who Departed This Life Jan. 25th 1692, And Was Interred At Southwark
Wherein The Arguments Urged To Prove The Covenant Of Redemption A Distinct Covenant From The Covenant Of Grace, Are Examined, Weighed, And Found Wanting
To which Is Added, An Elegy On The Death Of The Said Minister
By Benjamin Keach (1640-1704), Pastor Of A Church Of Christ, Meeting At Horsly-down, Southwark, 1693
Benjamin Keach (1640-1704) was a Particular Baptist pastor and prolific writer. He was converted to Christ in his youth and in 1659 began to preach the gospel under the auspices of a free will Baptist church in Buckinghamshire. In 1664, he was arrested on charges of publishing a schismatical catechism for children. He was sentenced to two weeks’ imprisonment, fined twenty pounds and pilloried for several hours in Aylesbury and Winslow. In 1668, he moved to London and was appointed the Pastor at the Horsleydown congregation in Southwark. Having now come into contact with several Particular Baptist ministers, he began to nurture Calvinistic views of the gospel, becoming one of the leading Particular Baptist ministers in London. He served thirty-six years as the Pastor for the Horsleydown church, was one of the signers of the 1689 Second London Baptist Confession of Faith and was the author of more than forty books.
