Excerpt from Memorial of the Centennial Anniversary: Of the First Presbyterian Church, Augusta, Georgia It is sought herein to preserve in a worthy form the proceedings of that memorable occasion; to garner up the wisdom of many minds and the fruitage of rich and manifold experiences; to tell of the things which we have heard and know and which our fathers have told us. So much of the church's history as could be gathered is herein presented; able addresses on Education, Home and Foreign Missions are made record of; place is given the exercises of the Sabbath school on Centennial Sabbath, and under various and proper headings are set forth several phases of the centennial occasion itself, and also the activities by which we have sought to glorify God. The admirable sermon of Rev. Dr. G. B. Strickler on The Distinctive Doctrines of the Presbyterian Church is reluctantly omitted in the volume because the distinguished author says, I am anxious to pre sent, some time in the future, our distinctive doctrines in a popular form that will commend them to some who now are prejudiced against them. We shall anticipate this intended work from Dr. Strickler with confidence in its great polemical value. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

No American denomination identified itself more closely with the nation's democratic ideal than the Baptists. Most antebellum southern Baptist churches allowed women and slaves to vote on membership matters and preferred populists preachers who addressed their appeals to the common person. Paradoxically no denomination could wield religious authority as zealously as the Baptists. Between 1785 and 1860 they ritually excommunicated forty to fifty thousand church members in Georgia alone. Wills demonstrates how a denomination of freedom-loving individualists came to embrace an exclusivist spirituality--a spirituality that continues to shape Southern Baptist churches in contemporary conflicts between moderates who urge tolerance and conservatives who require belief in scriptural inerrancy. Wills's analysis advances our understanding of the interaction between democracy and religious authority, and will appeal to scholars of American religion, culture, and history, as well as to Baptist observers.
