Why? Do they have some special help from the Holy Spirit? Do they have special ways of winning people? Do they have doctrines which appeal to people? Several years ago in writing a paper for a pastoral conference we were impressed with the thought that perhaps the Baptists do have a set of doctrines which have special appeal to the middle and lower classes of people.

In the present study we have investigated this thought further. We have made our emphasis the place that man plays in Baptist theology. Thus as we look at each area of Baptist theology, we attempt, wherever possible to point out· the importance of man in that area, and how this consideration plays a vital role. Thus as Fuller says all · that Baptists believe and practice they are forced to believe and practice because of what they believe about man.
