Rick Shrader‘s Review:

The subtitle to this book is, “Charlotte Baptist Chapel, Edinburgh, 1808-2008.  Ian Balfour is a long-time member of this church and a fine historian.  We met Ian Balfour a few years ago on one of our Baptist History tours when he spoke to us at a lunch.  This year we found that the Chapel had moved so we spent time finding their new location.  While there I was given Balfour’s recent book on the history of the church up to the time of their relocation.  This is a completely thorough history of this great Baptist church from the very beginning in the early 1800s.  The church was founded by Christopher Anderson who was then connected to James and Robert Haldane and Andrew Fuller.  Throughout the years it was pastored by such great men as William Graham Scroggie and J. Sidlow Baxter and D.L. Moody spoke in the church during his 1873 tour in Scotland.  It was our joy to attend a Sunday morning service in the old auditorium before the recent relocation.
