Why Do So Few Baptists Know About Walter Rauschenbusch?

“I’m not sure how it happened.

I grew up in Baptist churches and attended a Baptist university.

Yet, I do not remember learning about Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918) – a Baptist pastor who emphasized the social nature of the gospel proclaimed and embodied by Jesus – until my last year of seminary.

Maybe I missed it or wasn’t paying close enough attention, but Rauschenbusch is a name not easily forgotten.”
