Never before has a book sought to relate the various aberrations of Southern Baptist history to the defense of slavery. Copeland maintains that the inception of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is tainted by its origins in the defense of slavery. The Southern Baptist Convention and the Judgment of History also emphasizes the relation to American Baptists, the response to the ecumenical movement, the position of women, the enforcement of theological orthodoxy, and foreign missions.

Industry Reviews

Copeland...points out fruitful avenues of research and suggests new questions. . . . He clarifies his thesis against critics of the first edition by reminding his readers the he never intended to show slavery as the sole cause of what he calls the 'various aberrations of the Southern Baptist Convention, ' just one of the oldest and most persistent.--Loyd Allen, McAfee School of Theology "Review and Expositor "
