Item description for The Truth in Crisis: The Conservative Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention, Vol. 6 (Truth In Crisis #6) by James C. Hefley...

Overview
In response to customer requests, Hannibal Books in 2004 reprinted James C. Hefley's much sought-after Volume 6 (sometimes called The Missing Volume) of the classic The Truth in Crisis series. The reprint marked the first time in 14 years that the volume was available to the reading public. Also known as The Conservative Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention, Volume 6 was published in limited quantities in 1991. It immediately sold out; at that time Hannibal Books did not choose to reprint. Hefley wrote Volume 6 as his final report on the controversy between 1979 and 1991 that rocked and dramatically changed the nation's largest non-Catholic denomination. The book contains 364 pages and is about twice the size of each of Volumes 1 through 5. Hefley designed the book to be a condensed version of the other five volumes but with additional materials included. Then at the time of publication he changed his mind and listed the book as Volume 6. Hefley, who founded Hannibal Books in 1984 and sold the company in 1999 to Louis and Kay Moore, died in 2004. He described the book as ". . . the wrap-up book of The Truth in Crisis series." He noted that it "covered 70 years of eventful Southern Baptist history, culminating in the most revolutionary change of a denomination in American church history." "Here is very recent history available nowhere else, including the dramatic 'Showdown at the Sunday School Board', the account of the crucial 1991 overturn at Southern Seminary, 'Baylor University--Saved or Stolen?', and much much more," Hefley wrote on the book's back cover. He called the book "a 'must' study for Southern Baptist pastors, agency employees, seminarians, professors and laity who want the full story of what is happening to Southern Baptists." He said the book would be "helpful to anyone who wishes to understand how a major church body was turned in a more conservative direction by a grassroots movement that got out the vote to defeat one of the most powerful religious establishments in America." In its reprint, Hannibal Books neither edited nor changed in any way Hefley's original manuscript. The book appears exactly as it did in 1991 except for address and website changes for Hannibal Books and the addition of one page dedicating the reprint to James and Marti Hefley. The two died in the spring of 2004 of unrelated illnesses only weeks apart. The dedication says, "Together in life. Together again singing praises around God's t

Publishers Description
"The Conservative Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention" is sometimes referred to as Volume Six of James C. Hefley's classic, "The Truth in Crisis." It has also been called the "The Missing Volume." Fewer copies of this volume were printed than any of the other five volumes which have remained in print over the years. Many consider this volume a collector's item. Hefley described volume six as "the wrap-up book of "The Truth in Crisis" series. It covers 70 years of eventful Southern Baptist history, culminating in the most revolutionary change of a denomination in American church history. Here is recent Baptist history available nowhere else, including the dramatic "Showdown at the Sunday School board," the account of the crucial 1991 breakthrough at Southern Seminary, "Baylor University, Saved or Stolen?" and much, much more. The volume is a "must" read for Southern Baptist pastors, agency employees, seminarians, professors and laity who want the full story of what happened to Southern Baptists in the closing years of the 20th century. The book is helpful to anyone who wishes to understand how a major church body was turned in a more conservative direction by a grassroots movement that got out the vote to defeat one of the most powerful religious establishments in America. "Each chater is well documents and no 'loose ends' are left dangling," writes Dr. Lewis Drummond in the book's foreword. "The book . . . speaks of very able scholarship."
