Malkhaz Songulashvili, former Archbishop of the Evangelical Baptist
Church of Georgia (EBCG), provides a pioneering, exacting, and
sweeping history of Georgian Baptists. Utilizing archival sources
in Georgian, Russian, German, and Englishatranslating many of these
crucial documents for the first time into Englishahe recounts the
history of the EBCG from its formation in 1867 to the present.
While the particular story of Georgian Baptists merits telling in
its own right, and not simply as a feature of Russian religious
life, Songulashvili employs Georgian Baptists as a sustained case
study on the convergence of religion and culture. The interaction
of Eastern Orthodox, Western Protestant, and Russian dissenting
religious traditionsamixed into the political cauldron of Russian
occupation of a formerly distinct eastern European culturealed to a
remarkable experiment in Christian free-church identity.
Evangelical Christian Baptists of Georgia allows readers to peer
through the lens of intercultural studies to see the powerful
relationships among politics, religion, and culture in the
formation of Georgian Baptists, and their blending of Orthodox
tradition into Baptist life to craft a unique ecclesiology,
liturgy, and aesthetics.
