Alabama Baptists Southern Baptists in the Heart of Dixie Press Reviews

Flynt examines Alabama Baptists from the varied perspectives of individual, congregational, and denominational experience. The result is a rich, detailed depiction that reveals the years of careful research that undoubtedly went into its writing. - Choice A life-long Alabama Baptist and a distinguished scholar, Flynt has demonstrated that sound historical research contributes clarity and perspective to denominational controversy and that inquiry into religious institutions adds depth and richness to the history of the American South. - Journal of Southern History The 'state church' of Alabama is Southern Baptist. One in every four inhabitants of that state and two of every three church members there are members of the Alabama Baptist State Convention. Alabama has the highest percentage of any state in the union....Flynt is a well seasoned professional historian as well as an insider. Both backgrounds cooperate to contribute an honest and fair account....This volume could very well be the best historical account of any denomination in any state of the United States. - Church History
