Description

Never before has a book sought to relate the various aberrations of Southern Baptist history to the defense of slavery. Copeland maintains that the inception of the Southern Baptist Convention is tainted by its origins in the defense of slavery. The Southern Baptist Convention and the Judgment of History also emphasizes the relation to American Baptists, the response to the ecumenical movement, the position of women, the enforcement of theological orthodoxy, and foreign missions.
