Download e-book for kindle: Baptist Theology (Doing Theology) by Stephen R. Holmes

Thisbook considers the distinct principles and expressions of Christian religion to befound within the old Baptist church buildings. an summary of the heritage of theBaptist circulate can be provided, from its British beginnings in Amsterdam in1609, via its diverse advancements in Britain, Europe and North the USA, toits all over the world presence and variety this present day, and its courting to many otherchurches with apparently-similar practices (Pentecostal and ‘new’ churches,e.g.).

Holmes attracts some of the threads jointly, noting the realdiversities within the background of Baptist theology, yet suggesting that during a visionof the current and pressing Lordship of Christ skilled within the localcongregation, there's a thread that hyperlinks every one of these distinctives.
