I recently posted F.H. Kerfoot's editorial correction to James P. Boyce's teaching that regeneration precedes faith in the Ordo salutis published in Boyce's first edition of the Abstract of Systematic Theology (1887). Kerfoot was recommended to the trustees by Boyce himself to take over the theology chair at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. At first, Kerfoot became co-professor of theology alongside Boyce. However, that lasted only a short time due to Boyce's declining health. Thus, Kerfoot became the head of the theology department and served the chair of theology upon Boyce's death in 1888, approximately a year after Boyce published his Abstract of Systematic Theology. Kerfoot would serve as Southern's theology professor for the next eleven years. After the "Whitsett controversy" vacated the President's seat, and the trustees chose E.Y. Mullins to succeed the fallen Whitsett as president rather than Kerfoot, Kerfoot took a position as secretary of the Home Mission Board serving that role until his death in 1901.
