Like a Wildfire: The Growth of Virginia Baptists Between 1765 and 1774. Baptist History and Heritage Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
In the late 1760s and early 1770s, Baptists spread throughout Virginia through the efforts of a small group of men. Though often facing intense persecution and rejection, these men recruited scores of people across Virginia, organizing new churches wherever they went. The Separate Baptists experienced the most significant growth, increasing from approximately seven churches in 1770 to at least fifty-four churches in 1774. (1) Baptist historian Robert B. Semple compared this growth to the spread of wildfire where sparks flew off uncontrollably and started new fires in the distance. (2)
