Autorentext

C. DOUGLAS WEAVER is the director of Undergraduate Studies in the department of Religion at Baylor University. He has taught Baptist History and other courses in the History of Christianity for over two decades. Weaver has written several books and articles, including The Healer Prophet: William Marrion Branham (Mercer, 1987). He is editing a new edition of E. Y. Mullins's Axioms of Religion and is co-editor of a new forthcoming series on Early English Baptist Texts.



Klappentext

When John Smyth organized the first Baptist church, he wanted to establish the New Testament church; believer's baptism was the missing link. Baptists of subsequent eras often continued the search to embody "New Testament Christianity." Alongside the quest for the New Testament church (and congregational community), Weaver especially highlights the Baptist commitment to religious liberty and the individual conscience. Both chronological and thematic, this book addresses such themes as the role of women, the social gospel, ecumenism, charismatic influences, and theological emphases in Baptist life.
