Book Summary of The Baptist Story by Anthony Chute, Nathan Finn, and Michael A.G. Haykin


Covering over 400 years of rich history, The Baptist Story is a narrative that showcases the humble beginnings of a small sect with peculiar convictions to a diverse global movement manifesting their faith as Baptists. There is no question that there may be a wide variety of Baptists who will read and feel represented. Historically, there has been great division over subjects like Calvinism and Arminianism, finer points of ecclesiology, and missions practices. Nevertheless, The Baptist Story is a work that tells the story for all Baptists without getting “lost in the particulars” (p. 3).

Regardless of the colorful array of the Baptist coalition, “Baptists around the world share at least two common characteristics… they have embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ, repenting of their sins and trusting in his meritorious work, and they have followed through with his command to be baptized, a visible display of death to sin and resurrection to new life.” (p. 6)
