Raised Right—The Making of Southern Baptist Identity

(p.1) Introduction
God Speaks to Us, Too

Susan M. Shaw

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses Baptists, who are often characterized as thinking pretty differently about a lot of things from those belonging to other Christian religions. The Baptist religion is by far the predominant religion in the South and it originated in seventeenth-century England. It was during this time when Baptists were on the cutting edge of radical changes in Protestant faith and practice, but today people hardly think of Baptists as dissenters and nonconformists. The chapter also describes the identity of a Southern Baptist and what it means to be a Baptist.

Keywords:   Baptist, religion, South, seventeenth century, radical changes, Protestant, faith, practice, Baptist identity
