During the era reported on in Truth in Crisis volume 3, the Southern Baptist Convention's new conservative agenda and role on the American political scene was born and nurtured.

Anyone wanting to understand the SBC's new high-profile public role on major social issues of the new millennium will not want to miss this excellent description of how the conservative wing wrested control from the moderates and literally turned the SBC from a "sleeping giant" into a potent conservative, pro-life, anti-Clinton social force in America in the late 1990s and beyond.

Students of American political thought as well as theology will find this book filled with fascinating accounts of how the conservative SBC wing literally rewrote the convention's role and involvement in American politics, particularly in Washington. It began with a change in the leadership of the convention's tiny Christian Life Commission, but the seeds that were planted there played major roles later in the impeachment process of President William Jefferson Clinton, himself a Southern Baptist, as well as the SBC's strong pro-life, anti-homosexual stands.
