Signed by the author on the first blank — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “Miss Holt has chosen the history of Liverpool’s oldest Dissenting congregation to illustrate the development of religious thought and practice from 1688 to 1938. The story begins with the chapel founded by an ejected minister, when doctrine was Calvinistic. It passes through the eighteenth century when theology was liberalized, and the emphasis placed on good works, exemplified in this congregation by William Roscoe and his fight against the slave trade. In the nineteenth century the book shows Unitarianism triumphant in the teaching of John Hamilton Thorn, the friend of Martineau and the follower of Channing. Finally, it points to the part that religion should still play in the lives of thoughtful and sincere men and women.”
