    “Invites you to enter into the eighteenth century, then proceeds to make you feel comfortable with the warmth and richness of the prose.” A comment by my friend, VALLI POOLE. Ron Southern has focussed this work of secular Christian sociology on revealing moments of Evangelical Revival history, and its people, who I watched in the compassion of readership: p. 62.: ‘”Viney’s litany of concerns, his visionary poetic, can best be seen in the words he chooses to emphasize in his letter to Spangenberg. Punishment and discipline ranked high in the things done to real malefactors, but he was not one.”’ This singular book of great beauty and devotion to history contains prose to touch the heart, and scholarship to illumine the minds we inherited from our forebears: p. 25.: ‘”At Cambuslang, and independently across the country, small fires of grace were lit. Ministers felt they were living a dream. Opening out before them were inexplicable movements of spirit in people.’” Their concerns of... More > faith, conflict, sexuality, and identity echo within. Their forms arise from these pages and whisper through me.: p. 221.: ‘”Milton became a way through time: a way to see the present potently, the ever-possible future, not merely the past; even that past present in Robe’s mind. This was the imagined present just under the surface of everyday fact.”’ They make their agonising choices, and stand or fall against the darkness in the world. A most worthy game. I felt humbled by their human stories, and the privilege of meeting with them inside this remarkable work. DAVE ELLISON< Less
