The Baptists have always headed the individualistic forces. That was the part assigned to them in the human drama, and that is their glory and crown. Naturally, then, their history is a history of conflicts, of chains, and prisons. It is no string of accidents which has caused the Baptists to furnish so large a part of the world's heroes and martyrs.
Every war has its budget of cost, and the Baptists have always been at war. They have been in the very nature of their calling the religious warriors of the centuries, and they possess the warrior's virtues and the warrior's faults, and they must naturally expect to leave their dead upon the world's battle fields. It is conceded by the historian Bancroft that freedom of conscience is their trophy. If all the corner stones laid in freedom's honor could have a composite expression in human form there would be a greater "Stone Face" than Nathaniel Hawthorne's and its very lineaments would be Baptistic.
The logic of the this volume is that the mission of the Baptists has not yet been completed.
