Item Description...
Overview
The simply titled Baptists by esteemed academic Timothy George is a one-volume narrative history of the Baptist movement from pre-revolutionary England to the end of the twentieth century. Moreso than dryly reported previous books on the subject, it presents an interesting, readable, and edifying account of the Baptist story that proves accessible to the literate layperson as well as college and seminary students of Baptist history and theology. George writes as a conservative, confessional Baptist who appreciates the wider context of the Christian faith within which the Baptist movement has flourished. In retelling the Baptist story, he relies heavily on biography, focusing in on key figures and documents from John Bunyan, Benjamin Keach, and Shubal Stearns to The Diary of Anne Judson, African American pastor John Jasper, Billy Graham, and Bill Wallace, the Baptist witness for human rights and religious liberty
