Description

Challenges to religious liberty are increasingly common today as historical Christianity comes into conflict with a new, secular orthodoxy. In this thoroughly revised second edition of First Freedom, leading evangelical scholars present the biblical and historical foundations for religious freedom in America, and address pressing topics such as: * Religious freedom and the exclusivity of the gospel * The Christian doctrine of religious liberty * Religious liberty and the public square * Religious freedom and the sexual revolution * Baptist contributions to religious freedom, and much more. The contributors equip churches, pastors, and Christian citizens to uphold this "first freedom" given by God and defended by Christians throughout our nation's history.show more

Review quote

"As religious liberties erode in America, First Freedom is a refreshing resource presenting pertinent information for all to consider regarding this seminal topic." --Steve Gaines, president, Southern Baptist Convention, and senior pastor, Bellevue Baptist Church "It is difficult to exaggerate the historical importance of the Baptist witness to religious liberty...The spiritual ancestors of the contributors to the volume would be as proud of them as I am grateful to them for placing their impressive intellectual gifts at the service of our first freedom." --Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University "This book is an excellent resource for believers to be informed about religious liberty so they can take their place in helping to defend it both now and for future generations." --Erik W. Stanley, senior counsel and director of the Center for Christian Ministries, Alliance Defending Freedomshow more
