Summary: Without laying exclusive claim to any one doctrine, Baptist have established a collective of beliefs that are distinctive and defining. Unfortunately, in an increasingly post-denominational age, fewer Baptists are aware of the power and potential of their own witness. When Baptists celebrated the 400th anniversary of their distinctive tradition in 2010, faculty of the George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University delivered a unique chapel series to proclaim the Baptist identity. Beginning with those sermons and expanding upon them, this books offers this generation a relevant understanding of Baptist faith and identity, based on the proclamation of 14 classic and emerging distinctives.
