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. Beginning with preaching in England, where the Baptist family tree first sprouted, Professor McKibbins documents the profound debt of Baptist preaching in America to its English heritage. He then traces American preaching from the colonial period through the Revolutionary era and on to the continuing influence of John A. Broadus. Part three takes a different turn, assessing the legacy of Baptist preaching traced in the first two sections and suggesting ways to prepare sermons that will honor that heritage.
