Baptists played a formative role in the fundamentalist/modernist controversy, but their contributions have never been studied in-depth until now. One in Hope and Doctrine offers a long-overdue narrative history, seen through the eyes of two leading characters, Oliver van Osdel and Robert Ketcham. The authors discuss the formation of the General Association of Regular Baptists, Conservative Baptists, the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship, the World Baptist Fellowship, the Bible Baptist Fellowship, the Sword of the Lord, and the movement that became known as Independent Fundamental Baptists. Carefully developed after years of research, personal interviews, and primary sources, the book will be valuable to scholars, pastors, and ordinary church members.
