This 1980 Moody book reads more like a list of biographies than a doctrine or church history book.  The authors’ purpose was to show how Baptists have believed in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scripture.  In doing this, they include 29 stories of Baptists (ranging from giants like Gill, Spurgeon, Carroll, Robertson to more liberal men like Rauschenbusch, Matthews and Fosdick) and 13 stories of American confessions of faith.  The book is worth a used book price for the historical value.  My favorite quip was of B.H. Carroll:  “He was an amazing scholar, a self-taught theologian who could read up to three hundred pages per day without neglecting his other duties, and then years later recall the material—including the page references.”
