“We are in Bill Leonard’s debt for accomplishing this almost impossible feat [a one-volume Baptist history] in an admirable fashion.” —Baptist History and Heritage Journal
“With this new book, [Leonard] has done a tremendous service to all who teach Baptist history courses in colleges, seminaries, and divinity schools.” —CHOICE, Current Reviews for Academic Libraries
“Suitable for both the classroom and the living room, this volume reflects a sensitivity to Baptist diversity at a time when Baptists are increasingly polarized. As a one volume introduction to Baptist history, Baptist Ways is a must-read and a worthy successor to previous Baptist surveys. —Bruce Gourley, The Baptist Studies Bulletin
