    The book begins with a broad overview of Baptist origins and Australian Baptist history. It offers brief discussion of Baptist distinctive beliefs and how Baptist churches are organised. A section of biographies of some Baptists heroes are included. The second half of the book focuses on detailed national statistics of Baptist churches and discussion of their implications for the mission of Baptists in Australia today, and begins to explore challenges for the future. Thus the book explores the history and current state of Baptists, in order to develop ministry and mission implications for the future of Baptists in Australia.
