520    "The Puritans called Baptists 'the troublers of churches 
       in all places' and hounded them out of Massachusetts Bay 
       Colony. Four hundred years later, Baptists are the second-
       largest religious group in America, and their influence 
       matches their numbers. They have built strong institutions,
       from megachurches to publishing houses to charities to 
       mission organizations, and have firmly established 
       themselves in the mainstream of American culture. Yet the 
       historical legacy of outsider status lingers, and the 
       inherently fractured nature of their faith makes Baptists 
       ever wary of threats from within as well as without. In 
       Baptists in America, Thomas S. Kidd and Barry Hankins 
       explore the long-running tensions between church, state, 
       and culture that Baptists have shaped and navigated. 
       Despite the moment of unity that their early persecution 
       provided, their history has been marked by internal 
       battles and schisms that were microcosms of national 
       events, from the conflict over slavery that divided North 
       from South to the conservative revolution of the 1970s and
       80s. Baptists have made an indelible impact on American 
       religious and cultural history, from their early 
       insistence that America should have no established church 
       to their place in the modern-day culture wars, where they 
       frequently advocate greater religious involvement in 
       politics. Yet the more mainstream they have become, the 
       more they have been pressured to conform to the mainstream,
       a paradox that defines--and is essential to understanding-
       -the Baptist experience in America. Kidd and Hankins, both
       practicing Baptists, weave the threads of Baptist history 
       alongside those of American history. Baptists in America 
       is a remarkable story of how one religious denomination 
       was transformed from persecuted minority into a leading 
       actor on the national stage, with profound implications 
       for American society and culture"--Provided by publisher.
