Christ the Center on The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes

About a month or so ago I had the privilege of joining the guys from Christ the Center to interview Thabiti Anyabwile on the life and thought of Lemuel Haynes. Rev. Anyabwile is Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman (talk about suffering for the Lord!). He has edited May We Meet in the Heavenly World, a book of Haynes' writings which includes a helpful biography, as well as authored the book The Decline of African American Theology: From Biblical Faith to Cultural Captivity. A little bit about Haynes, he lived from 1753 to 1833 and was an influential African-American pastor during the American Revolution. He was a devoted Calvinist who argued against slavery through the lens of God’s providence. Haynes was a well-known preacher and writer during his lifetime, but unfortunately, many have forgotten him in recent years. Our discussion of the life and thought of Lemuel Haynes can be found here. I also wanted to thank my good friend Chris Rehers who let me record from his house while my internet connection was down. Thanks!
