Baptists historically have shared common beliefs, including believer's baptism, congregational governance, and separation of church and state.

Eavesdropping on the Most Segregated Hour: A City’s Clergy Reflect on Racial Reconciliation
Edited by: Andrew M. Manis   With: Sandy Dwayne Martin
Product Code: P626
ISBN: 9780881467918
Availability: In stock
Price: $24.00
Andrew M. Manis recruited clergy from a broad spectrum of interracial, interreligious, and interdenominational communities of faith in Macon, Georgia, to address their congregations on the perennially controversial theme of racial reconciliation. Acknowledging the truism that eleven o'clock on Sunday morning remains the "most segregated hour" of the week, Manis argues that neither White nor Black congregations are familiar with what the other hears about race on the other side of the color line. Fourteen clergy bring their scriptural interpretations to bear on the longstanding problem of White supremacy in American life and culture.
