Why I Am a Baptist
While on a quest to understand our region's history I came upon a series of articles written by Walter Rauschenbusch about what it means to be a Baptist. I thought you might enjoy reading this series of articles. Recognize that these were written in 1905, long before gender inclusive language was conceived. This series appears in Rev. Dr. Rauschenbusch's own words, unedited and unabridged without commentary. - Alan Newton
