First Things: Beleaguered Behemoth

Feb. 24, 2015
Blog about “Baptists in America: A History,” a book by Baylor scholars Thomas Kidd, Ph.D., associate director of Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion, and Barry Hankins, Ph.D., professor and graduate program director of history in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences. Blogger Peter J. Leithart notes that “as Kidd and Hankins detail, the Baptists were the original American outsiders, ‘troublers of churches in all places,’ according to the Puritans, who banished and beat and imprisoned them, often for preaching Baptist doctrine or singing Baptist hymns.” Leithart quotes Kidd and Hankins, who wrote that “Baptists’ enduring feeling of being under attack” is part of the secret of their success, as it helps them to be vigilant. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, covers history and the Institute for Studies of Religion.)
