We welcome the co-editors, Dr. Curtis W. Freeman and Dr. Laura Levens, who share our conviction that Baptist history matters both inside and outside the church. Dr. Freeman is Research Professor of Theology and Baptist Studies and Director of the Baptist House at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Levens is Assistant Professor of Christian Mission at the Baptist Seminary of Kentucky. Dr. Deborah Bingham Van Broekhoven continues her service as managing editor.
We anticipate an accelerated schedule of publication, with more than four issues issued this year and next. Looking into the immediate future, readers can anticipate issues on a wide range of topics in Baptist history and life. Issues will include: the uses of Baptist history in preaching, essays from the 2011 Emerging Theologians Conference, Baptists and the shaping of American Culture, African American History Month materials, the Baptist Catholic Conversations, and many more. We apologize for the past delay in publication, and look forward to resuming our normal publishing schedule. Librarians and subscribers, look for new publications as soon as they are completed by our volunteer editors and writers!
American Baptist Quarterly is a publication that seeks to inquire in-depth into the nature of who we are as Baptists, especially those traditions that have come together in the member churches that are part of the fellowship of American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A.
Each issue contains articles, research and documentation to help the reader understand our heritage, our present resources and our future direction as Baptist Christians. Upcoming issues include:
Vol. 33 No. 1 – Baptists and American Culture
Vol. 33 No. 2 – Adoniram Judson Gordon: American Baptist Pastor and Evangelical Leader
Vol. 33 No. 3 – Sam Sharpe and the Baptist War Against Slavery
Vol. 33 No. 4 – The Pilgrim’s Progress and the Baptist Academy
The Quarterly is written for the average educated reader – lay or clergy – and includes footnotes and bibliography to suggest further reading. It is financed by reader subscriptions, individual and bulk sales, and contributions from the American Baptist Historical Society and the national boards of American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A.
