Jonathan A. Malone provides an excellent presentation of how Baptist theology emerged in the church historically and practically. This book is divided into three parts: first, the challenges and methodology associated with creating a Baptist Theology; second, worship and ordinances; and third, other aspects of church life and ministry such as baptism and funerals. A pivotal point in Malone’s “doing theology” is rooted in convictions, which he describes as “centrally held statements out of which a theology emerges.” Read this book to learn more about how Baptist theology is reflective of the responses of God’s people to God’s Word.
