I wanted to make everyone aware of a new book this is out there. Wiliam Brackney, Professor of Baptist history at Baylor University, has recently published A Genetic History of Baptists. I think it is an excellent book. It is published by Mercer University Press. It traces the roots of Baptists in America from several different contexts. It also talks about which universities and seminaries have had the greatest effect on Baptist churches. I highly reccomend this book.
