In volume 2, Hefley wakes up Southern Baptists who might be sitting around in their complacency believing that the controversy will go away. With his continuing penchant for fairness and his meticulous and dogged reportorial skills, he continues to show the deeply rooted nature of the issues that divide Southern Baptists in the defining days of the conservative resurgence. He does so because of the great responsibility he feels for people in the pew who deserve to know how their tithe money is being spent and what type of leaders their church's representatives are electing. While criticized at the time, Hefley's work will go down in history as one of the most important documents about the controversy.From the Author:
"I write and publish as one deeply concerned about the future of my denomination. As a rebellious 16-year-old, I was led to Christ by a Baptist home missionary. I attended a Southern Baptist college and seminar and was ordained to the ministry by a Southern Baptist church. I served as founding pastor of three Southern Baptist churches and am now on the staff (part-time) of a Baptist college. In this book and the previous one, I have written about my extended 'family.' If through reading these two volumes, members of the family called Southern Baptists come to better understand one another and the issues which have raised so much debate and trauma among us, then the tedious toil of recent months will have been worthwhile."
