"First Freedom: The Beginning and End of Religious Liberty"is the revised and updated edition of a 2007 volume born out of the first Baptist Distinctives conference held at Southwestern Seminary. In the decade that has passed since the original papers were given that resulted in the published chapters, the issues of religious liberty have only increased as matters of concern and subject of conversation and debate. Therefore, this new volume aims to create, as much as possible, a helpful go-to volume for Religious Liberty 101 conversations in the present day for pastors, church leaders, professors and other like-minded evangelicals. Written by an assembly of authors who presently engage on the front-lines of religious liberty discourse in the national and global public square as well as within churches and higher education institutions, "First Freedom"offers a word of up-to-date instruction and hope. Editors Thomas White, Malcom Yarnell, and Jason Duesing are joined by Paige Patterson, Barrett Duke, Evan Lenow, Andrew Walker, Russell Moore, Albert Mohler, and Travis Wussow."
