For Baptists, Jesus is the focal point of a religious narrative rooted in the New
Testament and continually expressed and re-expressed in congregational life and individual faith. More than four centuries of Baptists have focused on Jesus in their preaching, writing, confessing, witnessing, and living.
Renowned New Testament scholar Edgar McKnight traces the story of Jesus in Baptist life in an insightful and thoughtful fashion that scholars, ministers,
and laity alike will find compelling. McKnight demonstrates that in addition to drawing upon the testimony of the early church, Baptists have shaped
Jesus in ways unique, creative, and diverse. Baptists and Their Contribution to the Shaping of Jesus speaks to the heartbeat of the Baptist faith.
