Nurtured in a Tennessee Baptist home, the grandson of a pioneer Baptist preacher and church starter, William Whitsitt grew up knowing and admiring the principle leaders of Landmarkism (Graves, Pendleton, and Dayton). His Civil War experiences and studies at the University of Virginia, Southern Seminary, Berlin, and Leipzig brought him to broader views and the historical-critical approach to historical and biblical studies, placing him at odds with narrow denominationalism and the popular myth of an unbroken succession of Baptist churches all the way back to the New Testament.

William Owen Carver (1868–1954) was a denominational stalwart and longtime professor of Missions and Comparative Religion at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. For more than four decades he educated the denomination’s ministers and missionaries. Carver was considered one of the brightest minds in the growing denomination, a distinction evidenced by a seminary building, denominational library, and Baptist school of social work that continue to carry his name. He was a prolific writer, managing editor of the SBC academic journal Review & Expositor, and the first president of the Southern Baptist Historical Society.

Witnesses to the Baptist Heritage: Thirty Baptists Every Christian Should Know
Product Code: P519
ISBN: 9780881465488
Availability: In stock
Price: $28.00
Baptists lack a single central figure in their origins that Lutherans, Reformed, Presbyterians, and Methodists have with Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, and John Wesley. Additionally, Baptists focus so heavily on the Bible for authority and key beliefs or practices like religious liberty, social justice, missions, and preaching that sometimes Baptists and other Christians forget the significant role that people play in forging and promoting those ideas and practices. This book seeks to address this shortcoming by providing an introductory text of Baptist biographies.

Yet Saints Their Watch Are Keeping : Fundamentalists, Modernist, and the Development of Evangelical Ecclesiology, 1887-1937
By author: J. Michael Utzinger
Product Code: H665
ISBN: 9780865549029
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: Not currently available. (Backorder policy)
Price: $45.00
Using the late-nineteenth and early twentieth century Northern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church in the USA, and Disciples of Christ as case studies, Utzinger shows that evangelicals typically found ways to cooperate with one another in order to preserve their denominational institutions. And, rather than indicating the eclipse of denominationalism, fundamentalism and modernism acted to revitalize those institutions and help them persist.
