Readings in Baptist History compiles four centuries of notable religious documents, from John Smyth’s “The Character of the Beast” in 1609 all the way to the 2000 revision of the Southern Baptist Convention’s “Baptist Faith and Message.” This primary source Baptist history book can be used as a companion to larger history texts or stand strongly on its own. In all, it contains key information concerning the theology, origins, conflicts, denominational organization, and historical events of early English Baptists, American Colonial Baptists, Southern Baptists, American Baptists, the Baptist Missionary Association, European Baptists, Baptist Bible Fellowship, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and much more. The book also profiles influential pastors, theologians, missionaries, and Baptist leaders.

  • Seeks to help the reader see the flow of history and discern the development of the Baptist denomination
  • Provides confessions of faith and other materials that discuss ethical issues, the development of Baptist organizations, missions, controversial issues, and information on theologians, pastors and women
  • Incorporates material that concerns British Baptists, Black Baptists, American Baptists, Southern Baptists, Russian Baptists, Landmark Baptists, and Fundamental Baptists
"The most significant sourcebook on Baptists since Leon McBeth's book of readings in 1991. Helpful notes and indexes make the compilation even more useful. A necessary and valuable addition to the libraries of pastors, students and Baptist historians."

Bill Sumners, Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives

"Early has done a superb job in revising this collection of primary Baptist sources. I confidently expect a renewed life and usefulness for these documents. They will enrich the lives of countless students and other serious readers in years to come."

Leon McBeth, professor emeritus, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
