In 1979 the conservatives of the Southern Baptist Convention orchestrated a "take-over" of the leadership posts of the Convention. They have elected their candidate as president every year for two decades now (except for 1994 and 1995). The liberals have fought back with fury and fervor. As a result of the conservative resurgence, a number of good things have happened, but unfortunately the overall situation in the SBC has not improved as had been expected. The "take-over" (though hard fought and well intentioned) has not resulted in a "make-over." The documentation is plentiful and it is clear: the Bible-denying liberals are still holding numerous SBC-funded posts; the SBC conservatives are cozy with Catholics and charismatics; the SBC is more openly ecumenical today than when the conservative resurgence began; and years of liberal influence have severely weakened the doctrinal foundation of the SBC. As you read this eye-opening book you can draw your own conclusions. We are confidant you too will conclude that the SBC conservative "take-over" was not a "make-over."
