Paige Patterson

Al Mohler summarizes a recent booklet by Paige Patterson that provides a first-hand account of the reformation within the Southern Baptist Convention. Mohler writes:

More than any other individual, Paige Patterson was the man who put all at risk for the sake of what he so profoundly believed. Confronted by a looming denominational disaster, and aware of what this would mean to the cause of the Gospel, Paige Patterson threw himself into the controversy, defined the issues, mobilized an army, educated a denomination, and paved the way for a new generation to continue the work he so boldly began.
