Excellent history, as far as history in the U.S. is concerned. And I'm glad to find two of my g-g-grandfathers listed (J.W. Cunningham, p. 142; T. (Thomas) King, p. 520. I am also happy to see Alexander Campbell listed as an opponent of Calvinism. It is a damnable doctrine, despite what my ancestors taught. Campbell sought truth and caused multiplied thousands to open their Bibles to read for themselves and not just follow the error of Baptist doctrine. I find it interesting in the book that Mr. Grime would consider the apostle Paul a Baptist (although he did not come out and say it, he did imply such. See p. 4) Paul never called himself a Baptist.

An additional motive for leaving him to himself was the superstitious notion that all attempt at restraint...
