Towards Baptist Catholicity book note

The current issue of the Baptist World magazine published by the Baptist World Alliance includes a brief review of Towards Baptist Catholicity on p. 25.

More importantly, several feature articles in this issue tell the little-known stories of Baptists and other Christians in Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, and Turkey. Much media coverage of the role of religion in the Middle East focuses on Arab-Israeli tensions, neglecting the experience of Christian minority populations in that part of the world. These articles help fill in some of the gaps in our awareness.


  1. Steve,

    I saw a review in a copy of the Southwestern Journal of Theology that I picked up at the SBC in Louisville last week. Have you seen it? If not, I'll pdf you a copy.


  2. Wyman,

    Thanks for dropping by the blog. No, I've not seen the review, and I'd welcome the pdf copy. Many thanks.
