Baptists, like other Christians, are defined by doctrine--some of it common to all orthodox and evangelical groups and a portion of it importantly distinctive. Theological reformation is urgently needed in order to promote the spiritual effectiveness and longevity of the recent return to biblical authority. This reformation will speak with renewed vigor and fidelity in biblical exposition, walk circumspectly but energetically with beautiful gospel-bearing feet, strain forward toward the heavenly goal of Christ's transforming return, and remember the example and faith of Baptist pilgrims of the past. Who were the people and what were the teachings that gave Southern Baptist the bones, ligaments, muscles, breath, and blood to endure and prosper in the intensity of the twentieth century? Looking back to the founding fathers has the potential to provoke spiritual renewal by helping modern believers more clearly understand the Word of God. Such a reformation and revival among the Southern Baptist could, under God, significantly influence the mission, theological education, worship, and evangelism in the entire modern evangelical world. A blast of the trumpet to return to the faith once-delivered, as believed wholeheartly by the original Southern Baptist, is needed. This small book is designed to encourage those who appreciate the urgency of these issues to take up their trumpets, draw their breaths, and sound out the call for action.
