The conservative resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention has been one of the most remarkable changes in theological direction in recent history. After decades of suffering liberalism and neo-orthodoxy in the seminaries and denominational agencies, the people in the pews and pulpits finally said “enough” and reclaimed the denominational infrastructure for orthodoxy. As a result, the Bible is now plainly established in Baptist life as the infallible and inerrant Word of God, truth, without mixture of error, inspired in whole and in all its parts. The question for many is: Where do we go from here?
The authors of this book suggest that the crying need for Southern Baptists going forward is to apply Biblical precepts to our lives and practice. They provide an answer to the following questions:
- Why do we need a reformation? Where have we come from?
- Where are we going in this process of reformation? How did the Founders Movement start? What problems has it faced?
- What challenges will I face in local church reformation and how do I avoid shipwreck?
There is also a helpful appendix on the use of creeds, confessions and catechisms in our churches to address the question: What tools will I have to use as I seek reformation in my church?
