Starr, A Baptist Bibliography H988.

Robert Hall (1764-1831), “one of the most eminent of modern divines.” – Allibone. An English Baptist, and something of a child prodigy. “Before he was nine years of age he had perused and reperused, with intense interest, the treatises of the profound and extraordinary thinker, Jonathan Edwards, on the ‘Affections’ and on the ‘Will.’ About the same time he read, with a like interest, ‘Butler’s Analogy.’ Before he was ten years old he had written many essays, principally on religious subjects, and often invited his brothers and sisters to hear him preach.” – Dr. Olinthus Gregory. He began preaching publicly at age 16 and after 12 years of arduous labor suffered a mental collapse. After a two-year rest he returned and enjoyed a long and fruitful ministry both in the pulpit and the press.
