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.

In a world composed of almost seven billion people, about 2.2 billion of them claim to be Christian.

This book is written to ask if that assumption is true and to foster a more open conversation about other world religions.

Theology As Cultural Critique: The Achievement of Julian Hartt
By author: Wilson
Product Code: P148

Product Format: Paperback

Price: $35.00
At one time in the twentieth century, debates about "theology of culture"brought together an otherwise diverst group of theologians: Paul Tillich, Richard Kroner, H. Richard Niebuhr, Reinhold Niebuhr, Nicholai berdyaev, Emil Brunner, Bernard Meland, and Julian Hartt. Jonathan Wilson here retrieves the imporatant and influential work of Julian Hartt and argues from him that we must learn that theology that is faithful to the Gospel of jesus Christ is "theology as cultural critique." Hartt's pratice of theology as cultural critique is grounded in his convictions about the Gospel but the concept of theology as cultural critique arises from his analysis of "theology of culture." this first critical study of the work of Julian Hartt is an account of how the dicipline of theology engages in cultural critique. Jonathan R. Wilson is associate professor of Religious Studies at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California.

Rescue the Perishing : Selected Correspondence of Annie W. Armstrong

Annie W. Armstrong, more familiarly known as "Miss Annie," served as the first corresponding secretary of the Women’s Missionary Union, Auxiliary to the Southern Baptist Convention. Between 1888 and 1906 she wrote hundreds of letters on behalf of Southern Baptist missionary enterprises. Almost all of her letters inimitably expressed her opinion of "how things ought to be." Rescue the Perishing offers for the first time a selection of letters from this remarkable woman’s life. As a group, these letters indicate that Armstrong was both an innovator and tireless promoter of numerous missionary projects at home and abroad. Stubborn and forthright, some might even say abrasive, Miss Annie’s correspondence demonstrates that she was a gifted administrator with unparalleled organizational skills. Her guiding hand shaped the WMU’s role in Southern Baptist life. Moreover, her ability to work with a variety of denomination leaders in different contexts influenced Baptist polity and helped forge Southern Baptist denominational identity. These letters have never been available to the general public, and they offer great insight into the life and development of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1934 the WMU recognized Annie W. Armstrong’s legacy by naming their Easter offering for Home Missions in her honor. As these letters show, the recognition was well deserved.
