This series explores Baptists in all facets of Baptist life and thought. Open-ended and inclusive, this series seeks to publish works that advance understanding of where Baptists have been, where they are, and where they are tending. It will promote the exploration and investigation of Baptist history; publish classics of Baptist theologies; and examine the role of Baptists in societies and cultures both in the US and abroad. Read this biography by James A. Rogers and you begin to understand not only a single dominant personality with a formative influence of Baptists of the South, but you also begin to discern the shape of white southern Baptist life to come for two centuries. The tensions prominent in Furman's time between the Separate and the Regular Baptists persist to the present, and those tensions are not unimportant in explaining contemporary differences among white Baptists of the South. In addition to contextualizing Furman's life into the broader Baptist story, Rogers happily provides us with a sample of Furman's thought and writing. With eight appendixes consisting of Furman's writings, Rogers opens a window into the mind of Furman on issues of slavery, the Revolutionary War, Baptist ministerial education, and Baptist denominational organization. These documents make one aware that another volume, consisting entirely of Richard Furman's writings, is long overdue.
     

Southern Baptist Sisters: In Search of Status,  1845-2000Southern Baptist Sisters: In Search of Status, 1845-2000

When in 1845 the Southern Baptist Convention became the biggest Protestant "splinter group" in history--over the issue of slave ownership--women were expected to occupy a place subordinate to men. Since they were to be "silent in church," giving their money was the only way for Southern Baptist women to make a contribution. Over the years Baptist women have gained ground toward equality only to be driven back to their "place." In this book David Morgan documents this yo-yoing status of women among Southern Baptists, and shows that in the new millennium Southern Baptist women are officially back where they started more than 150 years ago. But Morgan also documents the fact that Southern Baptist women nevertheless have made monumental contributions to the life and work of the denomination, and that many if not most of them fully intend to continue their "mission," regardless.

All That Fits a Woman is a detailed, well-researched and well-written study of the lives of women missionaries and others associated with the Woman's Missionary Union Training School in Louisville, Kentucky. It includes case studies of individual women, along with careful analysis of the school's curriculum, architecture, and material culture. Cconnected to the Souther Baptist Theological Seminary, the WMU Training School provided enormous educational opportunities for Southern Baptist women, while ensuring that they would study and serve within the limits defined for them by male seminary faculty and by women leaders of the WMU. This history offers a feminist perspective, focusing on the subtle forms of teaching that were used and are still used today to exclude women from preaching ministry and leadership within the Southern Baptist Convention. This timely work resonates with current issues, as Southern Baptists continue to draw national attention for their stance on the submission of women to male authority. 160 pages, hardcover.
