About the Author
James Aitken Wylie (1808-1890) was a Scottish historian of religion and a Presbyterian minister. He was a prolific writer and is most famous for writing "The History of Protestantism". He lived as a Christian ought to live. Just after his death, it was said of him, "James Wylie was one of the best informed, most genial, and sympathetic of men, and his deep, unaffected humility was one of his greatest charms. It has been said that you could not be long with him without perceiving in him a lover of Christ and of all good men, and his unostentatious piety gave an unmistakable savour to all his life." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I am an author and publisher so I have intimate knowledge onto what kind of effort it takes to convert these older books into a Kindle release. This book is a quality Kindle release. It is not just a scanned PDF that is too difficult to read on small screens, the text is flowing and works just like any other Kindle book. The only gripe that I have is that there is no hypertext enabled table of contents. HOWEVER, for those of you with a Kindle with the d-pad included, you can use the left and right d-pad keys to jump through chapters one at a time. Using this functionality it is easy to navigate in large jumps through the text.
I had noticed that no other reviewer had mentioned how it looked on their Kindle device (I have both the Fire type reader interface and the eInk older Kindle and both display the book without issue) and wanted to reassure those out there contemplating its purchase.
If it had an HTTP TOC I would give it 5 stars.
