Overview

Exiled is a compilation of first-person narratives by conservative and moderate ministers and lay leaders who were stripped of their positions during the fundamentalist takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1979 to 1995. Individual people tell their personal stories, revealing the struggle and heartache that resulted from being vilified, dispossessed, and exiled. Carl L. Kell includes a variety of perspectives-from lay preachers and church members to prominent former SBC leaders, such as James Dunn and Carolyn Crumpler. The emption captured on the pages-sadness, shock, disbelief, resignation, and anger-will make Exiled moving even to readers who know little about the Southern Baptist movement.
