So it seems the EY Mullins collection in Community Pricing has leaped to the top of the list.  

his Biography from wikipedia.com reads:

"Mullins entered Texas A&M College at 16, and after graduation studied to become a lawyer, but a dramatic religious experience under the preaching of Major William Evander Penn caused him to pursue a career in foreign missions. He entered the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, graduating in 1885 as one of the top students in his class. He married Isla May Hawley, whom he met at Walnut Street Baptist Church inLouisville. They were parents of two sons, both of whom died in early childhood.[2]

The Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board, short on funds, turned down his application to become a missionary to Brazil. Years later, Mullins would become Associate Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board. Mullins also served in pastoral ministry in Baltimore, Maryland, where his experiences in the inner city gave him a sensibility to social issues that lasted a lifetime.

Following his time in Baltimore, Mullins settled into pastoral work in New England, far from his alma mater, which was embroiled in a bitter theological controversy with its third president, William Heth Whitsitt. When Southern Seminary sent an agent to his doorstep in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, to offer him its presidency, Mullins expressed initial shock at the thought of stepping into that difficult post. The unanimous call of the trustees persuaded him, however, and he assumed the presidency in 1899. [3]

Toward the end of his seminary presidency, Mullins led in the relocation of the 1877-era campus from downtown Louisville to a spacious suburban tract known as “the Beeches” in the hills east of the city. In 1926 a handsome academic and residential complex was completed in classical Georgian architecture, with a distinctive clock tower in his honor atop the main administrative building, Norton Hall. The main housing complex on the new campus was named Mullins Hall also in honor of his leadership.

In addition to serving as president, Mullins taught theology at the seminary. Out of his classroom experiences a pivotal textbook, The Christian Religion in Its Doctrinal Expression, was published in 1917, in addition to nine other books -- notably, The Axioms of Religion, Why is Christianity True?, and Christianity at the Crossroads.

Through his books, sermons and denominational articles, Mullins became one of the most influential Baptists of the twentieth century. His influence extended to all spheres of Southern Baptist life. From 1921 to 1924 Mullins served as the elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention as it wrestled with significant issues including the teaching of evolution. Mullins helped prevent a split in the denomination through the development of a consensus doctrinal statement called The Baptist Faith and Message, adopted in 1925, which has been updated several times as the convention has turned steadily more conservative in recent years. [4]

Shortly before his death from a paralyzing stroke, Mullins was named president of the Baptist World Alliance, in recognition of his important role in international Baptist life.

43 boxes of his correspondence and notebooks are held at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary."

 

[EDIT] - Mullins' Axioms of Religion would probably one of his most notable books in the collection

I hate to be the negative one around here but unless we find a rather large cache of new bidders this one won't make $20, closing in 31 hours!

In at $20 - when I put my bid in it noticeably moved to touching the line - at that rate it looks like possibly 10 or so more people would put it over the top at $20.

Those insisting it might go for $20 need to be prepared to miss out. Crying  An extra $5 for 11 volumes ?? Confused

Only if you are prepared to go to $25 will you get it for $20...... Wink

Its bizarely close to $20.  If it makes it I'd say knocking off $5 in less than half a week was pretty good!  Sign up for Mullins if you haven't already!!!

2 hours to go, who thinks we can make it to $15!!! Stick out tongue

No, thank you to everyone who jumped in.  It was a very quick effort (I'm sure there were many more outside the forums who did so as well)
