Diverging Loyalties: Baptists in Middle Georgia during the Civil War

Product Code: H833
ISBN: 9780881462586
Product Format: Hardback

Price: $35.00
Baptists in the South, rapidly rising to challenge Methodists numerically helped align Southern religion with the South's black slave culture. The birth of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1945, formed in order to preserve God's will for the African race, signaled the inevitability of war. This book explores the myriad of ways in which Baptists in Middle Georgia helped shape history before, during, and after the Civil War.

Domestic Slavery Considered as a Scriptural Institution
Product Code: H755
ISBN: 9780881461077
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Domestic Slavery originated in the nineteenth century as a literary debate. The chapters were originally the letters of Southern pastor Richard Fuller and Northern educator Francis Wayland, with each defending their respective positions. Historians of Southern religion consider Domestic Slavery to be one of the major contributions to the nineteenth-century debate over the peculiar institution. This critical edition of Domestic Slavery, which includes annotations and an appendix of related documents, represents the first reprint of this important work to be published since the mid-nineteenth century.

George Liele's Life and Legacy: An Unsung Hero
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H853
ISBN: 9780881463897
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Writers of church and mission history have devoted very few pages to George Liele’s ministry and most mentions ignore the global nature of his pioneer work, international influence, intelligence, and legacy. He launched a mission movement that reached from Georgia to Jamaica and from Jamaica to Sierra Leone and Nova Scotia—all before the pioneer work of William Carey, Adoniram Judson, Richard Allen, and Lott Cary. Beginning as a slave preacher, Liele learned the Baptist story and theology—a message he preached in South Carolina, Georgia, and Jamaica. In providing a comprehensive introduction to Liele’s life and work, this book draws readers into identifying with Liele and those who lived through a difficult historic period and who in the process developed a theology that guided them through the challenges of being a Christian leader in a slave society.

In Search of the New Testament Church : The Baptist Story
By author: C. Douglas Weaver
Product Code: H653
ISBN: 9780881461060
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
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.
