Protestant Nonconformist Texts: The twentieth century
David Michael Thompson, Kenneth Dix, Alan Ruston
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - Religion - 416 pages
This is the final volume in a series of four substantial volumes designed to demonstrate the range of interests of the several Protestant Nonconformist traditions from the time of their Separatist harbingers in the sixteenth century to the end of the twentieth century. The series represents a major project of the Association of Denominational Historical Societies and Cognate Libraries. Each volume comprises a General Introduction followed by texts illustrative of such topics as theology, philosophy, worship and socio-political concerns. This work has never before been drawn together for publication in this way. The works will prove to be an invaluable resource to scholars, students, academics and specialist and public libraries, as well as to a wider range of church, intellectual and general historians. Contemporary texts are used in this volume to illustrate key themes in the history of Nonconformity in England and Wales.
