Format: Paperback
If you are a Baptist of any kind, but specifically an American Baptist, and you want to know where our faith began and what influenced it to become what it is today, this is the book for you. It shares briefly and understandably about Baptist history, and then lays down some basic Baptist theological distinctions. And the author does this well. I highly recommend it.

This is a brief 126 page book which looks at the Baptist faith tradition, for those who are not familiar with it and want to learn some very basic history and information about Baptist faith practices. Because it was presumably written to be used in a small group setting it works for that purpose, esp. I think if the group is led by a person experienced in the Baptist denomination who can 'flesh" out the course with more interesting examples from real church life. I thought the book dealt fairly with the split between the Southern Baptist Convention and American Baptist Churches USA (the latter of which my church, Riverside in NYC) is affiliated with, as well as the United Church of Christ denomination.
