"One of the Baptist tradition's finest writing historians has given us here an engaging overview of the Baptist movement from the Reformation to the present day. A work of mature research, this book tells the Baptist story in a way that makes it accessible to scholars and beginning students alike." ùTimothy George, founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University, and General Editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture

Baptists Through the Centuries provides a chronological survey of the main developments in Baptist life and thought from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. As Baptists spread globally beyond their British and American origins, Bebbington demonstrates how they constantly adapted to the cultures and societies in which they lived, generating even more diversity within an already multifaceted identity. In the course of telling the story of Baptists, Bebbington also examines the challenging social, political, and intellectual issues in Baptist historyùattitudes on race, women's roles in the church, religious liberty, foreign missions, and denominational identityùand situates each one within a broader context.
