Product Description

John T. Christian takes readers down a two-volume journey through somewhat dark history of Baptists. We are far removed from many of the circumstances from times past. The representation of the Baptists was often made by enemies who did not scruple, when such a course suited their purpose, to blacken character. Often, because of persecution, Baptists were far more interested in hiding than they were in giving an account of themselves of their whereabouts.
