Old reruns...Night of the Living Dead, Reefer Madness, The Blob, Rocky Picture Horror Show...and now for those SBCers and ex-SBCers who never tire of the past:
The website is a book, The Fundamentalist Takeover In The Southern Baptist Convention by Robison (Rob) B. James, Barbara Jackson, Robert E. Shepherd, Jr., and Cornelia Showalter and is copyrighted by the CBF of Georgia. It’s not new. The online version is a fourth edition.
Brethren…sistren…it’s been 31 years since Adrian Rogers was the first of the long series of conservatives elected president.
It’s been over two decades since the moderates gave up the fight.
Next year the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship will observe a 20th anniversary.
Adrian, Chafin, Sherman, and many of the other prominent names are daid and buried.
They tell me that no one under 50 is even interested.
The SBC has moved on to struggle with another resurgence, the Great Commission Resurgence.
The CBF is more concerned about meeting a budget and keeping its mission people on the field.
...but, just to be safe, someone oughta get busy and put Pressler's book online.
