The Baptists (Hippocrene Great Religions of the World). 0870527843 (ISBN13: 9780870527845). Jordan and Stifle do a great job in explaining all the facets to the non-religious community about our faith. Theology, history, and the basic tenets were very well covered in the story. My only problem is that the authors had a chance to go into more detail into some of the schisms that the church went though and could have made the work more lush in explaining things but besides that an above average piece of religious literature.
Baptist churches are found in almost every country in the world and have about 40 million members worldwide. The roots of the Baptist movement date back to the sixteenth century and the post-Reformation period, although the first Baptist congregation appeared in 1609 in Holland. In Britain 2,150 churches belong to the Baptist Union of Great Britain, between them having 150,000 members. The name 'Baptist' comes from the Baptist practice of immersion in water. It was here that the Church of England minister, John Smyth, performed a radical and scandalous act of baptising himself by pouring water on his head.

Excerpt from book: MOHAMMEDANISM I. .THE NINETEENTH CENTURY ON the day of intercession for missions in the year 1873 Professor Max Miiller advanced the theory that the six great religions of the world are divisible into missionary and non - missionary religions. Under the first head he places Buddhism, Christianity, and Mohammedanism; while Brahminism, Zoroastrianism, and Judaism belong to the latter class.
The books are hard bound, contain copious photographs, and are of very high quality material and workmanship. This is a very pleasant break from the all to common books today where, for example, a Christian is trying to explain Islam and doing so from an obviously slanted perspective. All contributors are highly regarded professors, lecturers, and officers of the various religious groups or countries. I would trust the information in this set of books to accurately portray the beliefs of the various religions in an unbiased manner more than just about any other book I have seen that professes to be a survey of various religions.
