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:
Blessed Community: The Church and Theological Education
Baptists in Connecticut
Baptists on Race: A Legacy Perspective
Missions on the Old and New Frontier
Baptists and Ecumenical Conversations
Baptists and Methodists on Baptism
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.
