Item description for AGAINST RETURNING TO EGYPT by Jeff B. Pool...

Against Returning to Egypt is study of a doctrinal statement recently adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention: "The Report of the Presidential Theological Study Committee." Using criteria developed from the SBC's historic distinction between confessions of faith and creeds, Professor Jeff Pool takes the measure of this doctrinal statement and finds it wanting. He argues that the "Report" represents the greatest theological threat to the denomination in the history of the SBC. This threat consists primarily in that the "Report" intentionally erases the historic Baptist distinction between "confessions of faith" and "creeds," and, in addition, in that it presents - and in fact is based upon - a radically Calvinistic revision of the SBC's historic perspectives on several central Christian doctrines. This investigative study has significance for other traditions and histories during these tumultuous times, rightly characterized as times of "fundamentalist resurgence." The principles, motives, and aspirations examined here appear not only in other denominational histories but in other political, social, and cultural realms as well.

Reviews - What do customers think about AGAINST RETURNING TO EGYPT?

Hits the Nail on the Head  May 15, 2000
AS an ex-SoBaptist, I can certainly attest that Pool's book points out some of the worst attributes of the denomination. Pool writes, actually, AS a Baptist, and his criticism is matched only by his concern. He obviously has more stomach for it than I had, kudos to him for staying and trying to help.

People need to pay more attention. Of course there aren't many Baptists in Vermont--but there are a lot of Baptists in powerful places in this country. No, no one ought to be shocked that the SoBaptists are opposed to homosexual expression or that anyone not theologically conservative enough ought to repent and vote correctly! But a book like this needs to be widely circulated, if for information if nothing else. Bravo, Jeff Pool.

Liberal Pap  Apr 27, 2000
Wow, this author scared me! Did you know that a Baptist denomination resists abortion and thinks that homosexuality is incompatible with the Bible? Why, it's absolutely unthinkable! Yes, the Southern Baptists must be stopped. Being anti-abortion is just like being a Nazi, you know. I personally plan to marry my pet pig, and those evil Southern Baptists might tell me that bestiality is wrong. (Thank God there aren't many Baptists in Vermont!) Thank God this book makes it so clear that there is a denomination that believes the Bible. It's so, so scary.
Undeniable proof of Baptist liberalism  Jun 22, 1999
Although, it was certainly not Pool's intention, I have never read a book that proves the necessity of the conservative resurgence in the SBC more than this one. Pool was hired to teach at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary under the previous liberal administration of Russell Dilday. In this book, Pool denies biblical inerrancy, the sovereignty of God, original sin, and substitutionary atonement (he spends several pages making unconvincing, warmed-over Socinian argyments against substitutionary atonement). No book that I have ever read convinces me more that the Southwestern Trustees did the right thing when they fired Dilday in 1994. Dilday was hiring liberals like Pool who indoctrinated a whole generation of future pastors with heretical Socinian Pelagianism. Praise be to God that the Southwestern administration took appropriate action in the fall of 1997 to remove this heretic from campus. If you have any doubt that liberals used to teach at SBC seminaries, read this book, particularly the sections that deal with theology.
