about

Near the end of the last century, Southern Baptists gained prominence in the religious life of the region. They became defenders of the racial, political, social, and economic status quo as their power increased, and they departed from their earlier anti-establishment habits.

By the beginning of this century, however, a feisty tradition of dissent began to reappear in Southern Baptist life as criticism of the center increased from both the left and the right. Though never very numerous, progressive Baptists were no less active than their more prominent counterparts on the right. Inspired by little-known Walter Nathan Johnson, a network arose that included civil rights advocates, labor organizers, and women's rights advocates.
