Friends of the Canadian Baptist Historical Society may be interested to learn of the publication of a new book:
Gordon L. Heath, Dallas Friesen, and Taylor Murray are pleased to announce the publication of their new book Baptists in Canada: Their History and Polity (2020). From the cover:
“Baptists arrived in what would become Canada in the mid-eighteenth century, and from those early arrivals Baptists from a wide variety of backgrounds planted churches in every region of the vast nation. This book traces that history of Baptists in Canada, and provides historical antecedents and theological rationales for their church polity. Written in a generous spirit, it recognizes what Baptists share with other Christian communities and how they differ among themselves on some matters. It places Baptists in Canada in the larger historical and global context, and concludes with commentary on opportunities and challenges ahead.”
