Format: Hardcover
(...)David Beale, professor of Church history at Bob Jones University, has taken advantage of recent scholarly studies and his own personal knowledge in putting together an excellent treatment of the Mayflower Separatists and their connections with other seventeenth century British dissenters. After describing their background in the context of the English Reformation, Beale details the fortunes of the Pilgrims from their beginnings in the Lincolnshire area of northern England to their landing at Cape Cod in 1620 and beyond. He references everything with the best sources and fleshes out his account with colorful descriptions of these indomitably brave souls. This is the best single reference volume on the Pilgrims in print. An added bonus for Baptists especially is Chapter Eight, “How the Earliest English Baptists Originated from the Pilgrim Separatists,” in which Beale accurately describes the relationships of both General and Particular Baptists to Separatism. In doing so, he dispels the myth that seventeenth century Baptists were the product of continental Anabaptism. He also advances the position that Henry Jacob, normally considered the founder of English Puritan Congregationalism (the Independents), actually became a Separatist, having more in common with John Robinson, the Pilgrims’ “consistent separatist” pastor, than with either the English Puritans or the more radical “Brownists.”
What makes this volume particularly valuable are the appendices, ten in all, which consist of primary source materials highlighting significant events in Nonconformist history.

Format: Hardcover
Not just dry history but a very enjoyable read by an author who has researched, first hand, his subject.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't remember if the seller mentioned that this book had been water-damaged, or if the book was damaged en route to my house (post office), but this book came in BAD condition (black mildew/mold on many pages and warped, water-damaged pages throughout). There aren't many copies of this text around, so we kept it and my husband enjoyed reading it. Hate to give the seller a low rating if he doesn't deserve it, however. It could have been my fault, not reading the description carefully, or the Post Office's fault, allowing it to get rain-soaked.
