Description

Readings in Baptist History compiles four centuries of notable religious documents, from John Smyth’s “The Character of the Beast” in 1609 all the way to the 2000 revision of the Southern Baptist Convention’s “Baptist Faith and Message.” This primary source Baptist history book can be used as a companion to larger history texts or stand strongly on its own. In all, it contains key information concerning the theology, origins, conflicts, denominational organization, and historical events of early English Baptists, American Colonial Baptists, Southern Baptists, American Baptists, the Baptist Missionary Association, European Baptists, Baptist Bible Fellowship, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and much more. The book also profiles influential pastors, theologians, missionaries, and Baptist leaders.
