The Baptists and the American Revolution by William Cathcart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Cathcart is a well-known church historian and this brief work centers around the activities of a number of Baptists around the time of the American war for independence. He highlights their actions and influence at the time and particularly in the fight for religious liberty.
This aspect of history is not well known by many today. The commentary is interesting concerning living in a place with authorities who are hostile and antagonistic toward the true Christian faith. We will do well to reach more into history and acquaint ourselves with the circumstances of our predecessors in the church. I certainly recommend this book.
