Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is an outstanding overview of not only the history of the denomination, but the development of the ‘Baptist Distinctives’ that set Baptists apart from other evangelical denominations.” --Warren Kelly

“Mr. Torbet has done an excellent job detailing the often misunderstood history of the Baptists. His comments are supported by numerous references and sources so that the serious student may research his conclusions on their own. This is an excellent book for anybody searching for a credible Baptist history book without the modern leanings toward ecumenicalism.” --Mr. and Mrs. Kelly

By Warren Kelly VINE VOICE on July 6, 2004
Format: Hardcover
First of all, I don't know what book the reviewer from South Carolina read. Torbet distances himself from so-called Baptist successionism in the very first chapter of the book. He traces the developement of the modern Baptist church to the Particular Baptists in England.
This is an outstanding overview of not only the history of the denomination, but the developement of the "Baptist Distinctives" that set Baptists apart from other evangelical denominations. There is a rich history behind the Baptist church -- it is unfortunate that the Trail of Blood advocates have clouded that heritage in questionable historiography.
If you want to know what the truth is behind the Baptist church's history, read this book -- not Carroll's fantasy work.

Very dry but comprehensive....reads like a text book but that's OK....sometimes it can't be avoided.

Mr. torbet does his very best to try to make us believe that somehow other groups were really Baptist (maybe they didn't know it). I often feel sorry for the Baptist in their efforts to get past the 16th century as a church. I have been around long enough to realize they were born out of the reformational era and are a very radical offshoot of the Anglicans. I can well agree with them on their desire to cleanse the temple and make things simple in the way of worship and faith. However, I wish they just be honest and open about their real lack of ancient historical roots. Over all the book is a interesting read
