"This book is a marvelous record of the colloquy held in April 2003 to discuss the Baptist and Christian character of Baylor. Major academic figures at Baylor provide a clear, sound focus on the basic issues related to this aspect of Baylor's life. Of special help is the lead article by Dr. Schmeltekopf summarizing developments since Baylor's beginning bearing on these issues. He sets the context for the discussion generated by the remaining articles in the book. "
