Thank you, dear Andy. Anthony not only produced outstanding scholarship, but I don't know of anyone who did more to create "space" within which vigorous scholarship could take place, as you rightly note concerning the SBHT series, and the various festschriften and edited volumes. He also was a warm and caring person, one who extended hospitality freely, and who was unfailing in his encouragement of others in their work. It was a great honor to share in some of the work with him, and a greater honor still to have been his friend.

Thank you Andy I appreciate you writing this post about Anthony. I am deeply grateful and thankful for his encouragement and friendship over the last two decades. He was a very gifted scholar whose output in terms of publications was very impressive, but equally he encouraged and supported others in giving them opportunities for publication of their own work or in helping locate primary sources from our Baptist heritage. However, I want also to add a reference to his gracious humble character as a Christian gentleman. He will be greatly missed.
