Product Description

In response to Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton's broadly inclusive 2008 "New Baptist Covenant," Dockery issues an exclusive clarion call for cooperation, unity, and renewal throughout the Southern Baptist Convention. He warns against being sidetracked by issues that threaten a focus on confessional heritage, doctrinal fidelity, and the advance of the gospel. 256 pages, softcover from B&H.

Publisher's Description

An alternative to the controversial New Baptist Covenant, Southern Baptist Consensus and Renewal calls Southern Baptists to boldly unite and renew their commitment to the gospel, biblical authority, and their confessional heritage.

Endorsements

"Finally, Southern Baptists of the twenty-first century are shown the way back home. David Dockery, in the convincing and studied manner so typical of all his writings, calls for a fresh return to our theological, educational, and missiological roots . . . (providing) a compass by which to steer us out of our doldrums and onto the high seas of effectiveness."

—Tom Eliff, senior vice president, International Mission Board, and former president, Southern Baptist Convention.

"A comprehensive and challenging mandate . . . It calls our denomination to nothing less than a Great Commission resurgence rooted in the great biblical and theological truths that we hold in common. It is my prayer that this book will not only be read, but that its vision will be embraced."

—Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Southern Baptists stand at a crossroads today . . . David Dockery, one of our finest scholar-statesmen, points the way toward a more constructive future for a denomination called to reclaim its founding purpose of ‘eliciting, combining, and directing’ its energies in sharing the message of Jesus Christ with all the world."

—Timothy George, founding dean, Beeson Divinity School

"These are turbulent days in the Southern Baptist Convention . . . Our churches are struggling to reach people in a postmodern culture. Dockery reminds us that we cannot yield the gains the Convention has made in its commitment to truth and doctrinal fidelity. Yet, he offers a plan for renewal and consensus within our confessional heritage."

—Thom S. Rainer, president, LifeWay Christian Resources; coauthor of Simple Church

"A skillful analysis of the forces and factors which have made us who we are; a masterful discussion of theological issues that should pull us together and point us toward unity."

—Frank S. Page, president, Southern Baptist Convention

    It was an interesting book. It gave a good perspective from someone who is sympathetic to the conservative movement in the Southern Baptist Convention.
