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.

The Forgotten Heritage if Baptist preaching is-so Thomas R. McKibbens argues- characterized equally by intellectual rigor and evangelistic warmth. It is the union of head and heart in the pulpit, conservative in theology yet liberal in spirit. Above all, it is gracious, born of the grace of God. The greatest Baptist preaching has done more than grow large churches; it has nourished strong Christians in the passion and depth of the gospel.

Between 1788 and 1834 black Baptists formed their first distinctively black congregations and organized regional associations. By 1831, when an enslaved Baptist preacher named Nat Turner inspired an insurrection against slaveholders in Virginia, black Baptist had acquired “a peculiar and precarious religious freedom.” Turner’s rebellion and the black Baptist role in ending slavery in Jamaica brought restrictions on the movements of black preachers, but black Baptists continued to preach and to claim the freedom to worship as communities of believers.

Careful students of the Gospel of Luke have long been aware of the different “voices” woven into in narrative by its author. “There is a sense,” James M. Dawsey writes, in which the author of the Gospel “backed off from what he told and allowed his characters to speak, to agree and disagree, to use their own language and so to come alive in their story.” The confusion of Luke is purposeful; the purpose is pungently ironic; the irony is exquisite.

Students of the “Synoptic Problem” have long been concerned about the composition of the Gospel of Mark. Whether one believes that mark is the major source for Matthew and Luke (and, perhaps John) or that Mark as copied from Matthew and Luke, all agree that the author of Mark complied and edited-in scholarly terms, “redacted”- the materials from the Jesus tradition that were available in his time and place.

In the Writer as Shaman Ted R. Spivey argues that after lifelong pilgrimages both Conrad Aiken and Walter Percy have become authentic “men of letters” in an age when that class of human beings is nearly extinct. They serve as guides and helpers to many others who seek to make sense of the world in which science and technology often seem to represent the summit of human achievement. Both writers early absorbed the viewpoint of modern science and yet worked from youth onward in the realms of philosophy and literature. They saw the split between science and art as the fundamental problem of modern civilization.

To See the Promised Land: The Faith Pilgrimage of Martin Luther King, Jr.

In this study Frederick L. Downing sets out to tell the story of the pilgrimage of faith that led martin Luther King, Jr., to Memphis and martyrdom. Drawing on his extensive researching primary documents from the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta and the king Collection at Boston University, Professor Downing argues that Dr. King understood himself first as “a Baptist preacher” whose religious faith was so real and “closely knit to life” that he could not separate his life from his faith. Religion fro Dr. King was life, Professor Downing insists, reinforcing his research and his conclusions with the psychosocial theories of Erik Erikson and the categories for tracing the development of religious faith proposed by James Fowler. Professor Downing’s moving portrait of Martin Luther King as homo religious in twentieth-century America will endure as a testimony to the transforming power of religion in human experience. Biographers have investigated and celebrated Dr. King’s activities and accomplishments as a leader and spokesman for civil rights, world peace, and the eradication of hunger and poverty. Others have attempted, as intellectual historians, to trace the development of Dr. King’s thought. These are worthy endeavors. Yet Dr. King was more than a politician and political strategists, more than a philosopher and intellectual reformer. He was a preacher and, in that self-defined role, a prophet on a pilgrimage of faith.
