Early, Joe, Jr. The Life and Writings of Thomas Helwys. Macon, GA: Mercer University Press, 2009.

This book is part of a projected series entitled Early English Baptist Texts. It has a brief biography of the life of Thomas Helwys (pp. 3-50), and it includes a reprint of his known writings. After sending a copy of his writing on religious liberty to King James, Helwys was put in Newgate prison by the king, and Helwys died there.

Joe Early noted: "Helwy's soteriology was now a mix of Calvinism and Arminianism. In matters of original sin and the will, he became more Calvinistic than Arminian" (p. 35).

Joe Early wrote: "The soteriology of the Baptist church at Spitalfields was an amalgamarion of Calvinism and Arminianism" (p. 47).

Concerning the views of Helwys, Joe Early noted: "Only the original Greek and Hebrew texts were considered to be inspired" (p. 21).

Thomas Helwys wrote: "We refuse to use the translations, holding them much inferior to the originals" (pp. 21, 53).

If only modern day Baptist’s would read and learn about people like Helwys, Kiffin and Keach.
