In this book, Canipe traces the rise of Baptist democracy as reflected in the work of three prominent leaders who made significant contributions to Baptist life between 1900 and 1925. Celebrating the harmony between the principles of their church and the ideals of their state, these three Baptists eloquently articulated what, by the turn of the twentieth-century, had become an article of faith for many of their fellow Baptists: What American democracy is to worldly government, Baptist principles are to religion-God's chosen way for humanity.

Most observers consider E. Y. Mullins, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary from 1899 to 1928, to be the most influential Southern Baptist theologian and denominational leader of the twentieth century. His book, The Axioms of Religion (1908) is considered his most-creative and most-enduring work. The book was received as virtual orthodoxy by Baptists around the world. Complete with a critical introduction, this volume sets a new standard in Mullins study and in the study of Baptist history by restoring Mullins to his rightful place.
