"The Search for a Common Identity explores the process by which Scottish Baptists came to recognise the need for a union of Baptist churches in Scotland prior to 1869. This book identifies the major leaders in each of the three main Baptist streams in the early nineteenth century and shows how they came to the conviction that it was important for them to establish a common identity. At the heart of their unity was an enthusiasm for evangelism. The Baptist Home Missionary Society was formed in 1827. Its early successes demonstrated the wisdom of co-operation between the different Baptist agencies in Scotland. There had been three attempts to form a union of churches which failed because differences of perspectives could not be reconciled. The principle achievement of the 1869 Baptist Union was in enabling Baptists with different theological opinions to come together to promote common practical objectives. In short, a shared sense of purpose led to the growth and establishment of the Baptist Union of Scotland."--BOOK JACKET.
