Excerpt from The History of the English General Baptists, Vol. 1 of 2: The English General Baptists of the Seventeenth Century Whitfield, to rouse tour countrymen to an atten tion'to the most important oftall concerns; the salvation of their immortal souls. These useful men encountered violent opposition; but were blest with astonishing success and1 were soon joined by many respectable characters. Amongst others, the pious Lady Huntingdon 'ent'ered warmly into their views; and exerted all the influence which -her rank and fortune gave her, to promote their success. David Taylor; one of her servants, residing with her at Donington Park, in Leicestershire, having himself! Tasted that -the Lord was graciou's, was occasionally employed, 'under thezsanction of her. Ladyship; in preaching. In: thetneighbourhoodi ln.these benevolent excursions, he visited, in 1741,1glen field and Ratby, two villages inear Leicester. Curiosity'led many to'hear the strange'preacher, and histnew doctrines: and, among the rest, Mr: samueledeacon of Ratby, afterwards for many years pastor of the general baptist church at Bar ton Being informed, when at workin the field; that.a person had been preaching in the street, at Gle'nfield, and was going to preach again at Hat; by. He immediately laid downthis scythe, and went to hear him. The sermon made a lasting im pression on his mind, and induced him to search the scriptures. The dissoluteness and 1gnorance of the clergyman now struck him in a new light: and he began to reflect on his own danger, as part of the flock of so careless a shepherd. Afo ter much reading, reasoning, and perplexity, be.was enabled to rely on Christ alone for sal vation: and immediately found peace and joy in believing.

Church history is the story of the greatest community the world has known and the greatest movement in world history. Yet, just as the biblical record of the people of God is the story of a mixed people with great acts of faith and great failures in sin and unfaithfulness, so is the history of the people who have made up the church down through the ages. Church History, Volume Two is an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement. It offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from the just prior to the Reformation and through the next five-hundred-plus years into the present-day. This book looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church, detailing the times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, gives primary attention to the history of Christianity in the West (western Europe and North America), but given the global and ecumenical environment of the twenty-first century, it also covers Africa, eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

The Death of Christian Britain uses the latest techniques to offer new formulations of religion and secularisation and explores what it has meant to be 'religious' and 'irreligious' during the last 200 years. By listening to people's voices rather than purely counting heads, it offers a fresh history of de-christianisation, and predicts that the British experience since the 1960s is emblematic of the destiny of the whole of western Christianity. Challenging the generally held view that secularization has been a long and gradual process beginning with the industrial revolution, it proposes that it has been a catastrophic short term phenomenon starting with the 1960's. Is Christianity in Britain nearing extinction? Is the decline in Britain emblematic of the fate of western Christianity? Topical and controversial, The Death of Christian Britain is a bold and original work that will bring some uncomfortable truths to light.
