Abstract: The article reviews the book James Petigru Boyce: A Southern Baptist Statesman, by Thomas J. Nettles, part of the American Reformed Biographies book series. According to the reviewer, Thomas J. Nettles has written an impressive history of the early years of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) and the theological views of its founder, James Pedgru Boyce. Nettles persuasively argues that Boyce, steeped in the Reformed tradition, sought to establish a seminary that would produce Southern Baptist preachers who were equally committed to confessional Calvinism.
