This chapter focuses on James Petigru Boyce and his efforts to establish a Southern Baptist seminary. In 1856, Boyce emerged as the leader of a new effort to establish a Southern Baptist seminary. By the time of his election as professor of theology at Furman University in 1855, he had concluded that it was his duty under God to do all in his power to establish the seminary. Without his leadership and sacrificial devotion, the seminary would have failed to be established or, once established, would have suffered extinction. His energy, wisdom, and determination overcame the many obstacles and crises that threatened the seminary's existence.
