520    The Puritans hounded the Baptists out of Massachusetts Bay
       Colony. Four hundred years later, Baptists are the second-
       largest religious group in America, and their influence

       and Hankins, both practicing Baptists, weave the threads 
       of Baptist history alongside those of American history to

       stage, with profound implications for American society and
