Heaven & Earth features conversations between myself and another person who knows something fascinating. In these conversations, I play the role of the listener and ask questions to learn more about a topic.
Who are the Puritans? We talk about them all the time, but who are they really? Professor Michael Haykin speaks about the origin of the Puritans, their historical setting, and their influence in North America.
Born in England of Irish and Kurdish parents, Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin is Professor of Church History at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky, and the Director of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, which is based on the Southern campus but which also has an office in Ontario. Dr. Haykin is the author of a number of books dealing with Patristic and Baptist studies and is also the general editor of a forthcoming 16-volume edition of the works of Andrew Fuller (Walter de Gruyter). He and his wife Alison have their home in Dundas, Ontario, and are members at West Highland Baptist Church, Hamilton, Ontario. They have two grown children, Victoria and Nigel.
