Into the Pulpit

This chapter focuses on the moderates and their struggle to respond to the conservative agenda. Most moderates argued for freedom against conservatives' restraints and interpreted freedom within the new secular context of increasing pluralism and abundant choice. The chapter first focuses on SBWIM and the Alliance as they promoted the notion of dissent or prophetic tradition among Southern Baptists. The chapter then turns to the majority of moderates, who engaged the rhetoric of freedom as a means to unity, compromise, and unrealized victory.

Keywords:   moderates, conservatives, freedom, pluralism, Southern
