Down by the Riverside is the answer for people who want a basic orientation to the nature of Christian faith as practiced by Baptist believers. Author Everett Goodwin includes an overview of Baptist history in the United States as a guide to understanding Baptist faith and identity. By revealing the essential principles and distinctions of Baptist belief and by providing information on the theological and historical origins of those beliefs, this addition to the catalog of available Baptist resources is the perfect orientation tool for young people and other new Baptists.
"The whole world—or at least the whole Baptist world—has long needed a resource such as this: informative, but not stodgy; brief, but bold; fresh and refreshing. As St. Augustine was advised long ago, ‘Take up and read.'” —Baptist historian and author Ed Gaustad, Emeritus Professor, University of California, Riverside
“…Down by the Riverside should be required reading for every Baptist. It is an excellent study piece for Sunday school, discipleship and new member classes or youth groups.” —Baptists Today, July 2003
"“This book is recommended for church libraries, and is useful to academic libraries.” —The Christian Librarian, 2004
