Reviews

The essays here offer valuable insights into the forces that helped to determine the content and direction of the differing streams through changing ecclesiastical and political times. * Stephen Copson, Baptist Quarterly *


The essays here offer valuable insights into the forces that helped to determine the content and direction of the differing streams through changing ecclesiastical and political times. * Stephen Copson, Baptist Quarterly * This book is to be commended. It is not intimidatingly large, as so many recent, if useful, 'handbooks' have been. Yet it presents many pertinent issues in accessible language from a number of leading scholars. It is clearly encouraging for readers of this magazine to see a wider interest in the history of their own churchmanship. A good book on such subjects, well presented, is always welcome. * Susan Matthews, Congregational History Society Magazine *
