Baptist Faith and Message 1963 Mar 22, 2010
If you love church history in a more present-day setting, then this book will help demonstrate the timing, purpose, and need for the 1963 revision of the Baptist Faith and Message from the 1925 version. Every Baptist Pastor needs to read this book in order to understand the struggle of an era where political winds were felt, civil rights, vietnam, and other social events emerged that would demand a clear statement of faith for Southern Baptists. It was my blessing to have the author as my professor in Church History at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. This work is Dr. A.J. Smith's doctoral dissertaiton and is well researched with rich citations and bibliography. It is a must-read not only for Pastors but for any Southern Baptist who wants to know and better understand the Southern Baptist statement of faith.
