Southern Baptists stand at a crossroads today...David Dockery, one of our finest scholar-statesmen, points the way toward a more constructive future for a denomination called to reclaim its founding purpose of 'eliciting, combining, and directing' its energies in sharing the message of Jesus Chris with all the world.
Timothy George, founding dean, Beeson Divinity School
These are turbulent days in the Southern Baptist Convention... Our churches are struggling to reach people in a postmodern culture. Dockery reminds us that we cannot yield the gains the Convention has made in its commitment to truth and doctrinal fidelity. Yet, he offers a plan for renewal and consensus within our confessional heritage.

A skillful analysis of the forces and factors that have made us who we are; a masterful discussion of theological issues that should pull us together and point us toward unity.
