The final work of the legendary Baptist ethicist T.B. Maston will be released in 2024, according to the T.B. Maston Foundation. Maston was a popular professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, where he taught for over 40 years.
According to Carol Holcomb, church historian and professor in the College of Christian Studies at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Maston “shaped a generation of Baptist leaders,” and his “voice was amplified through the thousands of students who carried his ethical vision from his classroom into their careers as ministers, professors, missionaries, denominational leaders and public activists.”
The release of “Little Words that Challenge” will continue to spread Maston’s legacy and teachings to a new generation of people concerned about the ethical teachings and implications of Jesus.
According to David Morgan, the Maston Foundation’s Executive Director, the book “explores a key theme in the life and teaching of Maston: Walk as Jesus walked.” He added, “With splendid simplicity and a caring heart, ‘Little Words’ offers both motivation and guidance for those who desire to fully live the Christian life.”
Maston died in 1988 at the age of 90. The foundation bearing his name was created in 1986 to award scholarships to students majoring in Christian ethics and to conduct retreats for its scholars.
“Little Words that Challenge” will be released in installments throughout the year at the foundation’s website. The forward, introduction and first chapter are currently available to readers.
