The changes in the bureaucracy of the Southern Baptist Convention may seem of little concern to anybody except knowledgeable Southern Baptists. Yet what happened during the crucial 1989-1990 years covered in volume 5 of The Truth in Crisis affected Americans far beyond the Southern Baptist enclave of 15 million plus citizens. Soon, the convention would join the so-called New Right in lobby activities in Washington; soon, the clout and weight of the convention would be thrown against abortion mills and advocates; soon, the SBC leadership would openly confront those advocating homosexual rights. The SBC would lead the charge against President Clinton's programs, including against the President himself. Had the events in 1989-1990 gone a different way, American history might have been different during the 1990s and beyond. Serious students of church history as well as American history will not want to miss this volume.From the Author:
"I vowed-I fully intended that Volume Four would be the last in this series. Four books in a row on the Great Controversy seemed enough. Obviously things didn't turn out that way. Now I must eat crow and be forewarned. As Richard Jackson said about his intention not to be nominated again for the SBC presidency, 'No, but never is a long time.' So why a fifth volume anyway? I came to realize that this year-1989-90-was becoming the most crucial of the controversy, and that, at least for the sake of history, the events needed to be chronicled within a book. "
