Abstract:

The author details the conflict between some modern-day Southern Baptists, who saw themselves as crusaders for truth, as they sought to redeem a new holy land--the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC)--from the control of other Southern Baptists they viewed as "liberals." To the so-called liberals, the crusaders were "fundamentalists" on a mission, not to reclaim the SBC in the name of theological truth, but to gain control and redirect its activities according to their narrow political, social, and theological perspectives. Book briefly discusses the founding of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF).
