Item description for The Truth in Crisis, Vol. 5: The Winning Edge (The Controversy in the Southern Baptist Convention) by James C. Hefley & Mark Coppenger...

The changes in the bureaucracy of the Southern Baptist Convention may seem of little concern to anybody except knowledgeable Southern Baptists. Yet what happened during the crucial 1989-1990 years covered in volume 5 of The Truth in Crisis affected Americans far beyond the Southern Baptist enclave of 15-million-plus citizens. Soon, the convention would join the so-called New Right in lobby activities in Washington; soon, the clout and weight of the convention would be thrown against abortion mills and advocates; soon, the SBC leadership would openly confront those advocating homosexual rights. The SBC would lead the charge against President Clinton's programs, including against the President himself. Had the events in 1989-1990 gone a different way, American history might have been different during the 1990s and beyond. Serious students of church history as well as American history will not want to miss this volume.

Publishers Description
The shift in the Southern Baptist Convention toward a more conservative orientation was one of the most important developments in 20th century Christianity. The SBC is the largest non-Catholic denomination in the United States. The influence of its 16 million members extends literally around the world. In recent years, Southern Baptists have held many of the key political leadership positions in Washington, and the SBC's influence in Washington is enormous. The shift began in 1979 and continues today, though most historians say the actual "Battle for the Bible" concluded in 1993. In 1978, the SBC was shifting dramatically toward the theological positions held by more mainline Protestant groups. Today, the SBC leads the Evangelical world in theology, publishing, missions, and in many other ways, but has turned away from the mainline denominations. Author James C. Hefley was there as an eyewitness to history in the making. A gifted writer with a clear focus on the theological issues involved, Hefley wrote this six-volume series as developments occurred. He literally provides a step-by-step account of what happened.
