SBC History Podcast, J. Frank Norris

J. Frank Norris is one of the most infamous men in the history of the Southern Baptist Convention. He shot a man in his office, left rotting fruit on the doorsteps of seminary professors, and called out men in his sermon titles.

He is well known for his many exploits, and still talked about both in and out of the the SBC. Called the Shooting Salvationist, Norris makes us think about what do with man like that. How do we balance being thankful for the good a man did and condemning him for his evil actions? On today’s podcast Bart Barber talks about Norris and his place in SBC History.
