Identify the Baptists

In honor of the Baptist Identity Conference starting on Thursday at Union University, try to name the dead guys at the top of my blog. Start with the top row and go from right to left. No history professors allowed. :-)

I plan to leave in a few hours for the conference and look forward to the fellowship with many new and old friends there.

This looks like fun.

Here are the dead guys starting with the top row and going from left to right, then to the bottom row left to right:

1) John L. Dagg
2) William Carey
3) John A. Broadus
4) Charles H. Spurgeon
5) James P. Boyce
6) Andrews Fuller
7) P.H. Mell (but looks a little like J.M. Frost)

Please correct me where I am wrong.

Also, I would suggest adding an old time picture of Tom Ascol up there just for fun!

am I allowed to guess??? I'm no history prof, but I might have a bit of an unfair advantage I guess. :-)

Tom: Here's hoping that you will give us some insight to your perspective and those of the speakers at the conference.

We look forward to your posts in the days ahead.

Sincerely,
J.D. Rector

Chris and Bruce, you got them right (although only Bruce followed the Hebraic directions! :-) ). Samuel, you only missed one. David, you are correct and Becca, thanks for not playing, since you designed the template for me.

Steve, I look forward to seeing you and others, as well. I understand there is a bloggers' get-together tonight somewhere. That should be fun. I wonder if we will be able to talk to one another without keyboards in front of us?

J.D., great idea! I will try to do some of that, if time allows.

Spotted 6/7 of them -- didn't recognize the Dagg picture.

Have fun, Tom! I've never been so sad to live so far from my Alma Mater.

BY HIS GRACE AND FOR HIS GLORY ~

A BOOK ALL CHRISTIANS, AND BAPTISTS ESPECIALLY, SHOULD READ ~

I MAY BE A LITTLE CONFUSED
