The America’s Baptists series will explore this important denomination’s history in all of its complexity. Baptist history is both an important part of the main currents of religious history in the country and a unique story—or, rather, a series of unique stories—that reflects ecumenical, political, social, and certainly theological characteristics that, in many ways, are deeply American at their core. Many of these works will be historical monographs, but the series will embrace different types of primary and secondary works, including but not limited to annotated collections of diaries, letters, and personal reflections as well as biographies and essays.
