MORE WITNESSES TO THE BAPTIST HERITAGE continues telling the story of the rich and often overlooked diversity of Baptist life. In this sequel to WITNESSES TO THE BAPTIST HERITAGE, Williams focuses again on characteristics that represent Baptist key beliefs and ideals such as religious liberty, missions, and social justice. This volume introduces short biographies of twenty-four more Baptists that will challenge, encourage, and inspire Christians regardless of their denominational tradition. It will also help readers to realize that Baptists fill a much broader and deeper place in history than unfair stereotypical descriptions of Baptists of earlier years have given. At the same time, readers will not only find out more about Baptist ideals but also learn the stories of the diverse women and men who witnessed to the Baptist heritage. Written with students, pastors, and lay people in mind, scholars and historians will discover valuable introductions to significant Baptists who may be studied at greater length and in grander depth. A short, suggested reading list is added at the end of each chapter to enhance further study. Highlighted in this volume are Obadiah Holmes, Thomas Grantham, Anne Steele, Ann Hasseltine Judson, William Knibb, John Mason Peck, Emily Chubbuck Judson, William J. Simmons, Fannie Exile Scudder Heck, Henry L. Morehouse, Hannah Marie Norris Armstrong, Augustus H. Strong, John Clifford, Virginia Broughton, Leslie Lee Gwaltney, Clarence Leonard Jordan, Joseph Martin Dawson, Fannie Lou Hamer, Eric Charles Rust, Prathia Hall, Cora Anne Davis, Addie Davis, William J. Reynolds, and Glen Harold Stassen.
