I found this Baptist history in my local “Used Christian Books” store, It was published by The Carey Kingsgate Press, London, 1947. It is one of those unique histories that is unaffected by the contemporary penchant for mere story telling. It pulls no punches when it comes to describing the persecutions Baptists experienced at the hands of the Catholic Church or at the hands of the Reformers. It treats Benjamin Keach’s introduction of congregational singing in a matter-of-fact and realistic way, not as an illogical apologetic for today’s contemporary music. It also is even-handed in its description of both General and Particular Baptists and their contribution to English history. A refreshing “older” read!
