". . . this work is a valuable testament to a church with a rich history even in its poor beginnings."—The Journal of Southern History
"This is local history at its best—carefully researched, well written, and filled with texture, color, and interest."—David Shi, tenth president of Furman University and author of America: A Narrative History
"This in-depth examination of the Antipedo Baptists of Georgetown is not merely an institutional history. In their extensive examination of this denomination, Talbert and Farish illuminate the deeply intertwined and ever evolving relationship between religion and culture, an aspect of southern history that cannot be ignored. Moreover, the role of African Americans in the church is a central thread of the book—from slavery to freedom. This is a fresh and thoughtful contribution to any study of Southern religion and culture."—Orville Vernon Burton, Creativity Professor of Humanities, Clemson University, and author, The Age of Lincoln
