R.W. Dale
Published by Quinta Press

Dale was the minister of Carr’s Lane Congregational Church, Birmingham (co-pastor and then successor to John Angell James), and wrote this Manual in 1884. It has become the clearest statement of Congregational principles of church government. Congregationalists should read this book to discover why their churches are organised as they are and members of churches of a different order should read this to discover why Congregationalists organise their churches as they do. Baptists will find much to agree with. Anglicans/Episcopalians will discover (in a lengthy appendix based on the work of Bishop Lightfoot) why Congregationalists consider the episcopal system system of church government to be unbiblical and the congregational system to be that of the New Testament church.

Two things spoil Dale’s work. His belief in “Christian Universalism” and his belief in indiscriminate baptism. A new appendix shows up these errors and points to the true Congregational view.
