Product Description

In this third volume of the 3-part series on Baptist history, renown Baptist historian Tom Nettles, covers the modern era, beginning with C.H. Spurgeon, and what he terms the "English Downgrade" and "American Decline" into modernity. He chronicles resistance to this trend as well as the recovery and reclamation of fundamental Baptist traditions. Along the way he examines such issues as the change in views on Scripture authority and the separation of church and state.

Publisher's Description

In the final part of Tom Nettle's Trilogy, he traces some of the modern movements with the Baptist diaspora.

Nettles looks at the downgrade in the British Church through the lenses of C.H. Spurgeon and John Clifford and the decline in America looking at the influences of A. H. Strong, E. Y. Mullins and the Baptist Modernists.
Key outcomes are explored that inevitably fomulate out of Baptist theology (e.g. separation of church and state).

The 'renewed contours' of the present day Baptist movement are also covered with particular reference to recent changes in the Southern Baptist Convention.

This series is a triumph! It serves as a neccessary addition to the story of the church.

Author Bio

Tom Nettles is Professor of Historical Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.

Editorial Reviews

"What has it meant, historically, to be a Baptist? Which modern Baptists would Charles Spurgeon recognize as his theological descendants? What happened between Spurgeon's day and ours? Tom Nettles masterfully explores these and other important questions, setting a new standard for Baptist history. This is a book every Baptist should read. Indeed, anyone interested in the Baptists would do well to start with these three powerful volumes. Nettles has not only given us standard texts on Baptist history, the life stories told here provoke devotional meditation, desire for faithfulness, and careful thought. Praise God for these books, then read them carefully, mark them thoroughly, revisit them through the years, and impart this history to the coming generations."
"This volume completes Tom Nettles' magisterial study of Baptist history. Building on his earlier research, Nettles carries the Baptist story into our own times. A work rich in detail and offering a distinctive interpretation of the people of God called Baptists."
