McGoldrick Makes Major Contribution to Baptist History!,
This review is from: Baptist Successionism: A Crucial Question in Baptist History (Atla Monograph Series) (Hardcover)
This is a book that needed to be written and finally, someone with the intelligence, background, scholarship, and GUTS has done it!
This amazing work is the difinitive answer to the theory of "Baptist Successionism," promoted in the early 1900's by Dr. JM Carroll.
Approximately two million copies of Carroll's booklet, "The Trail of Blood," have been printed and continue to be printed and distributed in the United States. With incisive reasoning and documented historical fact, McGoldrick provides a long-overdue response to Carroll's shoddy scholarship intellectual dishonesty.
McGoldrick's book is a must-read for anyone interested in Baptist Successionism. It is also a useful reference for those interested in the history of Christianity- particularly 19th century American "restoration" religions.
