Praise for the Print Edition
There can be no doubt that this is a most entertaining book. Arranging his matter according to localities he has given us nothing less than a succinct account of the fortunes (not the doctrines) of the Reformed Church in Europe from the 16th century until the present day. And what a story it is! What heroism, what suffering, and what failures are again brought to mind by this little volume.
