By Curtis W. Freeman
In Contesting Catholicity, Curtis W. Freeman deals an alternate Baptist identification, an “Other” type of Baptist, one who stands among the liberal and fundamentalist concepts. by means of discerning a sublime analogy between a few overdue glossy Baptist preachers, 17th- and eighteenth-century Baptist founders, and early patristic theologians, Freeman narrates the Baptist tale as a neighborhood that grapples with the convictions of the church catholic.
Deep analogical dialog around the centuries allows Freeman to realize new leverage on the entire supposedly particular Baptist theological identifiers. From believer’s baptism, the sacraments, and soul competency, to the Trinity, the priesthood of each believer, and native church autonomy, Freeman’s historic reconstruction demonstrates that Baptists did and will comprehend themselves as a non secular stream in the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church.
A “catholic Baptist” is absolutely player within the old church and on the exact same time is absolutely Baptist. This radical Baptist catholicity is greater than a quantitative experience of old and ecumenical communion with the broader church. This different Baptist id envisions a qualitative catholicity that's established at the confession of religion in Jesus Christ and old Trinitarian orthodoxy enacted within the worship of the church in and during note and sacrament.
