Baptist Roots provides an in-depth examination of Baptist theology rather than social history. The authors of these essays provide insight into the contemporary problems of Christian existence and of Baptist identity. Baptist Roots gives voice to significant but socially marginalized thinkers as well as acknowledged theologians like Roger Williams and Charles Spurgeon. This accessible volume will be appreciated by concerned Baptist pastors and church leaders as well as by students interested in the history and theology of the Baptist movement and of Christianity in general.
