A HISTORY OF THE BAPTISTS Volume 2 by John T Christian
A complete and accurate history of the origin and continuity of New Testament churches until they were firmly planted on the North American continent. A true Baptist history, unmarred by the current trend of Protestant thought coloring so many Baptist histories. Volume 2 of two volumes. (hardback)
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.
Volume II focuses on the growth of the Baptist faith in the Americas beginning with colonial time and goes through the American revolution and into the time when the Baptist faith grew and became organized.
