committed to historic Baptist & Reformed beliefs








baptist and reformed books

An on-going project of The Reformed Reader is to present authors of Baptist and Reformed books, miscellaneous works and on-line biographies.  A much needed resource for Baptists in the 21st century is a return to the "old paths" of our historic Baptist heritage rich in the Reformed faith.  Along with the "old paths", Reformed Baptist authors of our present time will be presented here as well as introducing authors less known but who are committed to the continuity of the Reformed Baptist faith.

If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, then error will be. If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendency. If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will. If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of this land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.

—Daniel Webster

Theologians of the Baptist Tradition
Baptists' Timothy George and David S. Dockery update and substantially reshape their classic book in an effort to preserve and discover the Baptists' “underappreciated contribution to Christianity's theological heritage.” George and Dockery have re-arranged this volume—considerably abbreviated from the seven-hundred page first edition—in light of the Southern Baptist identity controversy.  "Baptists should read this book to gain a better sense of who they are, others to discover an under appreciated contribution to Christianity's theological heritage".

—Mark Knoll, Wheaton College
