Index

"The value of the work lies in the amount of information it contains, and in the readiness of the many writers, coming from many denominations (Anglican and other) to identify themselves as convinced, though self-critical, Protestants. It will be a tonic to those who have got used to hearing 'Protestant' treated as a dirty word."
