The Forgotten Baptists

Even for historians as gifted as Thomas Kidd and Barry Hankins, three hundred pages is not nearly enough to do justice to the full diversity of Baptists in America, the title of their new book from Oxford University Press.

A. Smith in Desiring the Kingdom. I was familiar with DtK before … Continue reading
