Updated Edition Including The Charleston Confession of Faith and A Summary of Church Discipline From the Introduction: From the Protestant Reformation uses a historical argument in order to make that theological point. What our forefathers believed and taught about the nature of God's saving grace is worthy of our careful study. They were men committed to the authority and clarity of God's Word just as strongly as we are today. They did exegesis and exposition just as we do. We should be willing to listen to them. Perhaps they were wrong. If we become convinced of that then let's be bold to state it plainly. If we are unwilling to make that conclusion, then let's allow for the legitimacy of their doctrinal views and not fight against the growing recovery of them in our day. Baptists have a rich theological heritage. Lessons from that heritage can serve us well as we chart a God-glorifying course for the future. Commendations "This booklet provides an excellent summary of the doctrinal continuity between the sixteenth century Reformation and the confessional position of Southern Baptists at the time of the Convention's founding. In this day of heightened interest in Baptist doctrinal identity, there is not a more accessible and accurate presentation of the doctrinal issues involved than this brief, clear, accurate treatment." Tom Nettles Professor of Historical Theology The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "It is hard to write a classic, but that is what Tom Ascol did in 1996 when he first published this succinct and accurate summary of Baptist life from the Reformation to the SBC. This new edition is all the more valuable because it makes available classic documents from the Charleston tradition. Highly recommended!"
