From the cover: “DR. SYKES sketches salient features of the English religious tradition of the last four centuries, indicating its influence upon the development of Church, State and Society. In a series of imaginative little word pictures he brings to life the movements and personalities which have played so important a part in the development of our religious and social history. Beginning with the heritage of the Middle Ages, he ranges from the English Reformation, the Elizabethan Settlement, Puritanism and the seventeenth century, the eighteenth century Deism and Decline, John Wesley and the Methodist Revival, the nineteenth century with its Evangelical Revival and its Oxford Movement down to Christianity in the contemporary world. This is a brilliant survey of a great sweep of our religious history. Dr. Sykes is Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical History, and Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge,”
