Editorial Reviews

Review

"A major contribution to the fields of history and religious studies. From a Far Country will elicit long-overdue interest in a movement that has been marginalized by historians and may well be more central to modern evangelical Christianity than we had previously suspected."—Kathleen P. Long, Cornell University, and editor of Religious Differences in France: Past and Present


“A welcome addition to the small but growing body of scholarly work that examines the French Protestant experience from an Atlantic world perspective.”—Journal of American History



"The book's grand sweep is appealing. It has an elegant thesis, one possessed of enormous potential. Succinctly put, the cataclysmic violence and prophetic outpourings that attended the proscription and persecution of Protestants in late-seventeenth and early-eighteenth-century France reverberated profoundly in colonial America. Accordingly, the close examination of key Camisard figures and their trans-Atlantic influence provides a better, more precise sense of both French and American religious traditions."—Register of the Kentucky Historical Society



“Provid[es] important insights into the cultural transformations involved in the creation of a New World society. Her book contributes to the literature of colonial history, transatlantic history, and the cultural world of early America.”—Georgia Cosmos, author of Huguenot Prophecy and Clandestine Worship in the Eighteenth Century



“Randall’s work remains an essential read for anyone planning to study the Huguenots or Camisards, especially in an Atlantic context. Her research has clearly opened up a debate which should have come to light sooner; that the impact of immigration on a society does not stop at those immigrants who isolate themselves in immigrant communities, but is far more wide reaching.”—Christopher S Adams, Wesley Historical Society


From a Far Country helps readers to appreciate the varied influences on the Huguenots of the Atlantic world while further dispelling the notion that Huguenots simply assimilated to the prevalent communities in which they found themselves.” —John McGrath, The Historian
