Below is a list of books for sale by the Mt. Lebanon Book Association in 1856. Mt. Lebanon was the original home of Louisiana College. At the time, it was known as Mt. Lebanon University. It is interesting to see multiple books on church membership and a defense of restricted communion; two things Southern Baptists [...]
In an article that appeared in the Baptist Message, the state paper of the Louisiana Baptist Convention, M.E. Dodd wrote about the great contributions SBTS made to the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1925, as points five and six state, SBTS was seen as the “conservator” and “unifier” of our faith. Today, as was the case [...]

Today, it is common thought in the Southern Baptist Convention that strict confessionalism is unBaptist and a departure from historic Baptist principles. This is not the case. After the 1924 Convention and the announcement of a committee to make a recommendation on whether a statement of faith for the Southern Baptist Convention should be formed [...]
In parts one and two we saw an account of the Oklahoma County Pastor’s Conference and Dr. Duke McCall’s response. Dr. Moody replied on August 4, 1961 with his response published in the Baptist Press. It is simply too lengthy to post in its entirety but to be fair to Dr. Moody his full reply [...]
