As exotic as it is beautiful, Honduras evokes thoughts of bananas, the beautiful. blue Caribbean Sea, palm trees swaying in the wind, and a warm, balmy climate. Honduras also is a land of people God loves and has been working for centuries to bring to Himself. For more than 100 years Baptists have been a part of God's effort there. Author Stanley Stamps sets the Baptist movement in Honduras in the context of the history of that country including its economic, political, and religious developments. This is not just a history of Baptists in Honduras but a history of the country itself, with Baptists taking their proper place in history. Stanley shows the special role that Baptists, particularly Southern Baptists, have played in sharing Christ with the Honduran people--from the Mosquito Coast to the mountain-perched capital of Tegucigalpa. Himself a Southern Baptist missionary, Stanley lived much of the history that he shares in this important historical document.
