    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009A glorious read the story is fascinating and edifying the details are just enough and not too much and the history is uite relevant to someone like me who lives in a town with Boyce and Broadus streets—relevant in fact to any gospel preaching Baptist in AmericaMy only complaint is that Gregory Wills didn't give in to the temptation to puff his employer Al Mohler by including details about Mohler's role in the conservative retaking of the seminary in the early 1990s like the ones you can hear in two talks at CJ Mahaney's church Discretion is the better part of valor but before I die I would like to read a full account written with the same style and care and theological perspective Wills gives us in this book

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009A truly fascinating story as told by church historian Greg Wills The shift from the founders’ vision to the liberalism that dominated for over fifty years 1940 90 to the monumental change brought about by the conservative resurgence through Al Mohler is simply a remarkable story Wills’ attention to detail is startling and immense—perhaps too laboured at times my only critiue really—and navigates the seminaries exciting and exhilarating history So much to learn here from internal politics the role of trustees denominational ties and statements of faith I’m thankful that I’m able to study at this institution that presently stands for the unadulter

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009I have a friend who once told me that he went to Southern Seminary in the 1980's during the Honeycutt years he then proceeded to tell me that this was before Mohler came and fired everybody History is a curious thing some

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009Engaging fascinating bookWills carefully and clearly documents the transition from a conservative Calvinistic school under Boyce and Broadus to a progressive liberal school in the 20th century For three uarters of a century liberal faculty claimed to be teaching in accordance with Boyce's Abstract of Principles although they clearly reinterpreted it in accordance to their own whims Their dishonesty was frankly breathtaking Fortunately the book carries the story forward to the conservative takeover under Mohler giving the book a joyful endingI warmly recommend this read

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009The Southern Seminary has a rich history as the first academic theological voice for Southern Baptists Like the Southern Baptist Convention it has had its swings from conservatism to liberalism to conservatism once again Wills does a respectable job of going into detail of the different views held by faculty presidents and trustees However this book is not exhaustive in regard to that subject This book is also dated as it is missing the last decade of the Southern Seminary One of the things that Wills highlights is the use of the Abstract of Principl

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009Greg Wills writes the premier history of Southern Seminary Literally I think this book included every detail of every minute controversy that could have happened in any possible world This did make the book drag a bit especially in the middle chapters about the Whitsitt era Overall thou

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009From its beginning in 1859 all faculty of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary have been contractually obligated to teach in accordance with and not contrary to the Abstract of Principles This book is not just a history of Southern Seminary but a history of how the seminary has related to the Abstract from its beginning until now Some like Boyce Broadus and Mohler have taken the Abstract extremely seriously while some others for all intents and purposes have ignored it This book details how and why this occurred It's for this reason I believe

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009This well research book by Wills details the founding and development of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Wills spends substantial time discussing Southern’s various presidents and the doctrinalpractical challenges they faced over the years In many ways Wills presents Southern as a microcosm for Southern Baptists beginning with their Calvinist heritage tracing the battles with modernism and chronicling the modern conservative resurgence As a Southern Baptist I’m thankful for this book’s clear well reassigned historical accounting that helps me understand where my denomination came from

    Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859-2009 review ☆ 100 Southern Baptist Theological Seminary 1859, 2009A well researched book Greg Wills runs throughout the history of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary going from it's founder James P Boyce up to its current president Albert Mohler I had to read this book for school and honestly even though I gave it four stars there was too much detail in this book to keep my interest Of the thirteen chapters only three were of any real interest to me I would have liked to have seen information on Mohler's presidency after the gender battles
