Book Description :

The Baptist Story is a narrative history spanning over four centuries of a diverse group of people living among distinct cultures on separate continents while finding their identity in Christ and expressing their faith as Baptists. Baptist historians Anthony Chute, Nathan Finn, and Michael Haykin highlight the Baptist transition from a despised sect to a movement of global influence. Each chapter includes stories of people who made this history so fascinating. Although the emphasis is on the English-speaking world, The Baptist Story integrates stories of non-English-speaking Baptists, ethnic minorities, women, and minority theological traditions, all within the context of historic, orthodox Christianity. This volume provides more than just the essential events and necessary names to convey the grand history. It also addresses questions that students of Baptist history frequently ask, includes prayers and hymns of those who experienced hope and heartbreak, and directs the reader’s attention to the mission of the church as a whole. Written with an irenic tone and illustrated with photographs in every chapter, The Baptist Story is ideally suited for graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as group study in the local church.

Book Description :

When John Smyth organized the first Baptist church, he wanted to establish the New Testament church; believer's baptism was the missing link. Baptists of subsequent eras often continued the search to embody New Testament Christianity. Alongside the quest for the New Testament church (and congregational community), Weaver especially highlights the Baptist commitment to religious liberty and the individual conscience. Both chronological and thematic, this book addresses such themes as the role of women, the social gospel, ecumenism, charismatic influences, and theological emphases in Baptist life.

Book Description :

While the Christian tradition has subordinated John the Baptist to Jesus of Nazareth, John himself would likely have disagreed with that ranking. In this eye-opening new book, John the Baptist in History and Theology, Joel Marcus makes a powerful case that John saw himself, not Jesus, as the proclaimer and initiator of the kingdom of God and his own ministry as the center of God's saving action in history. Although the Fourth Gospel has the Baptist saying, "He must increase, but I must decrease," Marcus contends that this and other biblical and extrabiblical evidence reveal a continuing competition between the two men that early Christians sought to muffle. Like Jesus, John was an apocalyptic prophet who looked forward to the imminent end of the world and the establishment of God's rule on earth. Originally a member of the Dead Sea Sect, an apocalyptic community within Judaism, John broke with the group over his growing conviction that he himself was Elijah, the end-time prophet who would inaugurate God's kingdom on earth. Through his ministry of baptism, he ushered all who came to him—Jews and non-Jews alike—into this dawning new age. Jesus began his career as a follower of the Baptist, but, like other successor figures in religious history, he parted ways from his predecessor as he became convinced of his own centrality in God's purposes. Meanwhile John's mass following and apocalyptic message became political threats to Herod Antipas, who had John executed to abort any revolutionary movement. Based on close critical-historical readings of early texts—including the accounts of John in the Gospels and in Josephus's Antiquities—as well as parallels from later religious movements, John the Baptist in History and Theology situates the Baptist within Second Temple Judaism and compares him to other apocalyptic thinkers from ancient and modern times. It concludes with thoughtful reflections on how its revisionist interpretations might be incorporated into the Christian faith.

History and fiction merge beautifully in K. Ford K.'s vibrant, breathtaking novel about the mysterious man who became John the Baptist and the woman who loved him, his wife. Hessa, the daughter of a rich Greek trader, has an unusual talent, but in preparation for her marriage to a wealthy man, she is taught that she will have no real destiny of her own. Instead, she is to be the spinner of her husband's fate and share his fate to her death. But when Hessa meets a charismatic, young man named John, who is rumored to be a prophet, she falls in love and runs away to marry him. Thrown into the turmoil of Roman-occupied Judea, Hessa struggles to protect her husband, but what if her actions unwittingly lead to the destiny she fears most? The Wife of John the Baptist is a novel, rich with historical insight. It uncovers the mystery of a man who was greatly admired in his time, and who changed our way of thinking forever. A victory of the heart, this intimate portrayal of a marriage is a tribute to the timeless and unshakable love that triumphs when all else is lost.

Book Description :

Through this inspiring Bible-based novel, the author tells the story of John the Baptist. Sharing the ins and outs of John's daily life and the events surrounding the coming of Jesus, Yochanan shares an encouraging story of hope, faith, and the calling of God, while bringing fresh perspective to the story of Jesus. The author's character development, plot points, scene, and setting allow readers to put themselves in the shoes of one living during the time. Yochanan is eloquent and informative, through which the author weaves a tapestry of prose that excites, enthralls, and captivates the reader. Wonderful descriptions, brilliant interactions between characters, and story dialogue are realistic, emotive, and thoughtful, providing great flow and structure. With little narrative, the author allows character dialogue to reveal important information about the plot. Yochanan portrays a vivid realization of the struggle of the godly in an ungodly world, while masterfully balancing biblical teaching from the gospel story with an engaging storyline focusing on John, the man God used to usher forth His Son. The author is a retired law enforcement officer following a thirty-three-year career, eight of which he served as chief of police. He is a graduate of the Delinquency Control Institute from USC, the FBI National Academy from Quantico Virginia, and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree from National University in La Jolla, California. He is proud of his family: wife Robin for more than forty years, two sons and two grandsons.

Book Description :

The Baptist Story is a story of struggle and triumph, victory and heartbreak. There have always existed, although sometimes in the most remote regions, those who sought to maintain pure New Testament practice in the face of all adversity. These believers were a simple people who led a simple life, and who sought to adhere to the simple, primitive practices of the New Testament. For their adherence to the simple truths of God’s precious Word, these Godly saints suffered banishment, imprisonment, persecution, some even suffering death by fire and sword. Their persecutions were sanctioned by the pagan religious establishments of that day. But these saints endured because “they loved not their lives unto the death.” They counted the truth of God’s Word more precious than family, friends, and their very lives. This excellent work, which is a series of sermons based upon The Trail of Blood by the revered J. M. Carroll, presents in a simple, enlightening, and easy to read fashion, the story of these precious souls who lived pure lives and died for the simple truths which are often taken advantage of today. Baptists of today need to become more aware of the struggles borne by their forefathers and the premium price paid for the maintenance of New Testament truth. Just as we owe the military soldiers a debt for the sacrifices they have made for the cause of personal freedom, so we owe an even greater debt to the soldiers of the cross who suffered and gave their lives to secure our religious freedom, which is taken for granted today. We present this book with the hope that it will be used to make God’s people aware of their glorious past. We pray that the all-wise God will see fit to use this work to once again enlighten His people and to give them the courage to stand for the truths contained in His precious Word.

Book Description :

In 1834, Bishop Michael Anthony Fleming stood on the crest of a hill in St. John's, Newfoundland, and imagined a cathedral on the site. He had no land, no money, and no support, save that of an impoverished Irish congregation. Read the amazing story of how Fleming secured the land he wanted, raised the thousands of pounds required, and even quarried stone from the ground with his own bare hands. The massive project literally cost him his life, but even as the bishop's strength faded, he was determined to say the first Mass in the cathedral. And he did so, on a frigid January day, in an empty shell of a building, amid scaffolding and sawdust. It was a time when bishops spoke freely on political issues, whenever these infringed on the rights of their flock. It was a time when people marched in the thousands for the laying of the cornerstone in 1841, for the funeral of Bishop Fleming in 1850, and for the consecration of the cathedral on September 9, 1855. It was a time when people gave freely of their time and limited means: fencing the land, digging the foundation and hauling away gravel, and dragging great blocks of granite up from the harbour wharves to the construction site. Today the Basilica-Cathedral is a visual testament to the grit and determination of the people of St. John's and the bishops who led them. Each magnificent work of art tells its own story. The Dead Christ - 2,000 pounds and carved from a single block of marble. The memorial to Bishop Scallan - was the bishop actually excommunicated? And the old high altar - taken apart in 1955, but the controversy lives on. Take a tour of the Basilica of St. John the Baptist - you will never see it in the same way again.

Book Description :

The first archaeological evidence of the historical reality of the Gospel story. From a historical point of view, the uniqueness of this cave is that it contains archaeological evidence that comes to us from the very time of the personalities and events described in the Gospels. For here is the largest ritual bathing pool ever found in the Jerusalem area, and found in the village where John the Baptist was born, showing unmistakable signs of ritual use in the first century AD. Also in the cave is the earliest ever Christian art, depicting John the Baptist as well as the three crosses of the crucifixion. By using the forensic techniques available to the modern archaeologist, Gibson and his international team have been able to draw information from the drawings, pottery, coins, bones, remains of ritual fire and pieces of cloth found in the cave and match these up with the contemporary literary sources. This is a unique opportunity to build up a picture of the very first Christians, how they lived and even what they believed. As Gibson writes: “By fitting together the new archaeological facts with the historical information available (and sometimes buried) in scholarly literature, I believe I am able to throw an amazing amount of light on the personality and mission of John the Baptist. Who was he? Where did he come from? What were his beliefs and what was the baptism all about?”

Book Description :

The Antiquities of the Jews is a 20-volume historiographical work composed by Flavius Josephus in the 13th year of the reign of Roman emperor Flavius Domitian. The book contains an account of history of the Jewish people, written in Greek for Josephus' gentile patrons. In the first ten volumes, Josephus follows the events of the historical books of the Hebrew Bible beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve. The second ten volumes continue the history of the Jewish people beyond the biblical text and up to the Jewish War. This work provides valuable background material to historians wishing to understand 1st-century AD Judaism and the early Christian period._x000D_ _x000D_ Titus Flavius Josephus was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem—then part of Roman Judea—to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry. He initially fought against the Romans during the First Jewish–Roman War as head of Jewish forces in Galilee, until surrendering in 67 CE to Roman forces led by Vespasian after the six-week siege of Jotapata. After Vespasian became Emperor in 69 CE, he granted Josephus his freedom, at which time Josephus assumed the emperor's family name of Flavius. He fully defected to the Roman side and was granted Roman citizenship. Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century CE and the First Jewish–Roman War, including the Siege of Masada. His most important works were The Jewish War (c. 75) and Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94)._x000D_

Book Description :

ÒIn this age of hi-tech, impersonal living, our individual identities are in danger of being submerged and our collective past is easily forgotten. History is therefore more important now than it has been in any previous time. It is a corrective that insists we are not defined as a number in a data bank, but as people who have lived in relation to time and circumstances. Our roots lie not in a code but in interactions with other people and in the flow of daily events. ÒCanadian Baptists have eagerly awaited the day that someone would produce a comprehensive, candid and faithful report of who we are and what major events helped shape our identity. This book can only strengthen Canadian Baptist relationships, as it brings to mind our common or similar beginnings. ÒThe author of this history, Dr. Harry A. Renfree, has done us an immense service by giving us a history worth reflecting upon and one which ought to spur us on to glorify God in His church's mission. Well qualified to share his gifts as writer and interpreter, Dr. Renfree is a Canadian Baptist who has given lifelong leadership in the cause of Christ in this country. ÒMy hope is that the readers of this book will come to understand how Canadian Baptists have sought to serve Christ throughout their history and right up to the present day. May God's leading in this historic endeavour cause us to grieve over the errors of the past, to rejoice in the grace of God that has marked our joyful times and to firmly resolve to go forth in this day in our land to honour the Baptist name through true humility and servanthood.--R.
