Different and Distinctive, but Nevertheless Baptist: A History of Northminster Baptist Church, 1967-2017

Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Local church history is important. What great thinkers have written and what denominational bodies have declared in resolutions and organizational ministries are important, but "lived religion" at the ground level provides a fuller picture of the story of the Christian faith. The fifty-year (1967-2017) story of Northminster Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi, is one of those narratives that richly adds to our understanding of how faith has been lived in a particular setting.

William Wallace Finlator is a Southern Baptist preacher. Except for three years a t Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in the mid-1930s he has spent all of his life in North Carolina. Like most North Carolina Baptist ministers, Finlator has vigorously opposed gambling and the consumption of beverage alcohol. But while many ministers were organizing “Christian” segregation academies, Finlator campaigned for elimination of racial discrimination in public and religious institutions. He has opposed capital punishment and the war in Vietnam. He advocated separation of church and state, opposing prayer in public schools and proposing abolition of tax exemptions for church property. He has served as chaplain of the North Carolina AFL-CIO, chairman of the North Carolina Committee on Civil Rights, and vice president of the American Civil Liberties Union. Even in retirement Finlator remains a prophet, a humanist, and a pastor to many people who seek his compassion and counsel.

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.
