One of the the first histories of the Baptists that I read was this work by Erroll Hulse. In a small compass, Pastor Hulse covers a significant amount of territory and accurately shows the various streams that make up the English-speaking Baptist world. This small book gave me a solid overview that further in-depth research has confirmed and substantiated. While new questions are being asked and new avenues of interpretation being explored, which is the nature of historical research and is to be welcomed, it is great to see this classic overview back in print. It is a tried and true summary of what is now four hundred years of Baptist life and thought. — Dr. Michael Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality; Director, The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Excellent from beginning to end. Great book that EVERY Baptist should purchase for their home Christian library. You will learn things about your Baptist heritage that are must needs knowledge.
