Every three year, since 1997, an International Conference on Baptist Studies has been held--each conference being in a different country. The theme in 2006, when the Conference was held in Acadia University, Nova Scotia, Canada, was 'Baptists and Mission'. This is a theme that has been at the heart of Baptist life. Papers examined hom and foreign mission, evangelicalism and social concern. This volume draws together a range of the papers that were delivered. These explore and analyse the Baptist experience of mission in different lands and at various times. A number of the case studies presented are very specific in terms of time and place while others cover long periods and more than one country.This volume has studies of significant Baptist figures such as Hanserd Knollys, Andrew Fuller and Earl Merrick. Home mission in a number of settings in North America and Europe is examined. The range of places covered in the papers on overseas mission is considerable, including Bolivia, Mexico, India, Ivory Coast and Brazil. All of these studies, by historians drawn from many different contexts, add new insights in this crucial area of Baptist studies.
