Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Baptist Tradition is far wider  Apr 9, 2006
Dockery and George narrow the Baptist tradition to serve the interests of the fundamentalist machine which took over the Southern Baptist Convention 1979-1994. No one reading this volume will learn of such major Baptist theologians as William Newton Clarke (who wrote the first systematic theology from a liberal perspective in North America), Walter Rauschenbusch (theologian of the Social Gospel), such African-American worthies as Howard Thurman, Martin Luther King, Jr., J. Deotis Roberts, Hispanics like Orlando Costas or C. Rene Padilla, women like Martha Stearns Marshall (18th C. evangelist) or Anne Dutton (19th C. British Baptist theologian), etc. Even the conservative mainstream of Baptist life is narrowed between these covers so that progressive evangelical Baptists like Clark Pinnock or the late Stanley Grenz are ruled out. A more honest title would be "Theologians in the Conservative Calvinist Strand of Baptist Tradition."
 
Good History of Theology  Sep 27, 2005
This book is a historical survery of baptists, mainly from the standpoint of theology. Although this book does discuss history in general, it is much more concerned with the development of Baptist thought and literature over time as opposed to a specific lineage of Baptist people and places.
The book is divided into many short chapters, each devoted to a different historical Baptist theologian. Overall I think this book is very good; the historical information is well researched and informative and the discussion of historical theology is very insightful. Anyone looking for a brief yet interesting survery of Baptist thought and famous figures will find that this book should suit them well.
 
Drink Deeply of a Rich Heritage  Jan 20, 2003
Most of the books I read are a chore or mandatory, especially dealing with theology and Church History. However, this one was sheer delight. There have long been jokes about the ignorace of Baptists, for instance, "Whatis the difference between a Presbyterian and a Baptist? A Presbyterian is a Baptist that can read?" We Baptists may be known for our evangelistic fervor, but not for our Theological heritage. This book introduces the reader to minds that have been rivaled only by Calvin, Luther and the rest. The purpose of the book is to move the reader to study Baptist theology and, if a Baptist, to appreciate one's heritage. If not a Baptist, then to understand, evualuate, and appreciate this denomination's contribution to orthodox Christianity. Nor, are all these theologian's academicians, George and Dockery to a great job of combining mighty pastors (Spurgeon and Criswell, for a few) and Classroom theologians (Garret, Erickson and others). Of special interest are the chapters on A T Robertson, J Broadus, Spurgeon, and Criswell.
