Baptists historically have shared common beliefs, including believer's baptism, congregational governance, and separation of church and state. This book addresses the question of why Baptists differ in various parts of the world. A central component of the answer lies in part in the variety of cultures where Baptists have planted churches. In order to document the diversities, this study has intentionally sought contributions from Baptist scholars across the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, and eastern Europe as well as from western Europe and North America where Baptist presence is more common.

Why do lovers of J.R.R. Tolkien's LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy return to it again and again through their lives? Why does each rereading seem more nourishing? FRODO'S WOUND is a collection of essays that approaches these questions from various angles. It argues that while epic conflict and heroic warriors may provide the initial allure to the book, what lingers and deepens with each reading is its emotional complexity, its knowledge of loss and grief, and its yearning for something only dimly understood.
