I grew up in a Southern Baptist Church that had been indoctrinated by the "new" SBC regime of the 80's and 90's. I graduated from a Baptist University that broke off from it and mourned the loss of the "old" SBC. I was torn and caught in the middle of a controversy I didn't quite understand. Several churches later I began to see the problems myself and learn of the truth to the SBCs historical beliefs. Humphreys book helped me to fully understand the theological issues involved in the revisions to the Baptist Faith & Message and how we are not better off than we were before! I regret that I am just now understanding the controversy, but I am thankful that I can recommend this book to family and friends in the SBC who have absolutely no clue as to the true historical beliefs of the SBC. I am sad to say that the SBC with its current leadership is only apt to move further away from its roots and even further away from N.T. Christianity. This book should be required reading for all those who profess themselves to be a 'Southern Baptist' today.
