Who are Baptists? What do they believe? When and where did they originate? What do the many different groups of Baptists have in common? Over what issues and beliefs have they been divided historically?
Spanning from 1600 through the end of the twentieth century, Baptist Life and Thought: A Source Book answers these and many more questions surrounding this important stream of Christianity. A definitive resource, it contains well-known, seminal historical documents, as well as lesser-known, previously unpublished works that provide insights into the development and identity of Baptists.
An updated version of Baptist Life and Thought: 1600-1980, this volume includes primary documents selected to illustrate the emergence and growth of Baptists in Great Britain and North America and features a new section on the Baptists in Canada.
