Dr Dollar's Defining & Final Work

In 1972, Dr George Dollar was commissioned by Bob Jones Jr of Bob Jones University to author the inaugural publication of the new Bob Jones Press, a book detailing the progress of Baptist Fundamentlism in the United States. It was a monumental achievement requiring months of studious research, all of which is documented in the book. It was, and arguably still is, the greatest single source of information regarding the early days of Baptist Fundamentalism in America.

The final edition of his book, A History of Fundamentalism in America contains a large portion of the original 1973 scholarly work that the author wrote, the first historical reference book on the movement, and nine chapters of observations concerning the three decades since that publication. The volume represents the final research and writing of an incredible scholar and a life devoted to Fundamentalism.
