The essay. . . tells a story far less theological than most in this volume. Yet, it is still a very Baptist story. McMaster’s commitment to the Baptist faith, a faith convinced of the value of cooperative living and giving, helped build a denomination in the nineteenth century. . . however, McMaster was not a theologian. His legacy cannot be found in a library of books bearing his name, but in libraries full of books at a university that bears his name. To that end, we shall look at the vast riches of William McMaster’s life and legacy, a story overlooked by many of his present benefactors, but lying just beneath the surface of the past. --Peter Beck
