Through both the biographical essay and the selections from Lemuel Haynes' writings, readers are sure to perceive an Edwardsian sense of spirituality that ever lived in view of eternity. Well acquainted with difficulties, suffering, and death, Haynes' ministry was infused with the unfailing hope of heaven. Author Thabiti M. Anyabwile is senoir pastor of First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. "This well chosen selection from Lemuel Haynes' writings represents a significant part of the earliest African-American engagements with the Reformed theological tradition. In that tradition Haynes and his black contemporaries, both American and British, found a language of justice and inspiration that allowed them to criticize slavery and racial prejudice, and to offer a Christian vision of a free society. May We Meet in the Heavenly World can be recommended to students of Christian theology and of American history." -J ohn Saillant, author of Black Puritan, Black Republican: The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes, 1753-1833.
