Synopsis: This book presents six ground-breaking master's degree dissertations in the area of Baptist and Anabaptist Studies through the International Baptist Theological Seminary (IBTS), Prague. The focus is continental Europe, with a particular emphasis on Eastern Europe. The material is largely culled from primary sources. The topics covered include the theology of Baptist believers in Bulgaria, 1920-1939, the Pentecostal dilemma in the Finnish Baptist Union, 1930-1953, Moldovan Baptists, 1940-1965, the state and the Baptist churches in the USSR, 1960-1980, Baptist mission efforts in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the life and convictions of Hans Meier (1902-1992). Most of these topics have never been covered in English before. In the case of the studies of former Communist countries, this kind of research has only been possible in the last decade.
