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.

This study of William Marrion Branham’s ministry reveals much about the healing methodology of deliverance evangelists. Branham’s theology of healing highlights the widely accepted role of evangelists as mediators between God and the afflicted. In addition, some of his methods are still commonly practiced in healing revivalism. The dynamic growth of Pentecostalism in the twentieth century is a major feature of the modern religious scene. From its beginning, divine healing was recognized as a critical element of the Pentecostal movement. Branham is acknowledged as a leader of the healing revival movement. Although little known outside of the Pentecostal movement, his work had tremendous influence on the "prophetic" identity claimed by his contemporaries, today’s televagelists, and the whole of Pentecostalism itself.

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.
