Rick Shrader‘s Review:
I was delighted to find this 1918 edition on a lonely flea market shelf for just a couple bucks. I know you have to have a reason to read these kinds of books but I happened to have one. I was “delighted” because I have found more detailed and specific information than I have in many newer books. Even the artists rendering of timelines and charts were better. The book was written as a text by Cheney who was professor of European History at the University of Pennsylvania. The fruits of this and other such material benefits our “Discovering Baptist History” tours which we take each year, especially the years from the Reformation through Charles Spurgeon.
