Volume 1 (1516 -1791) Reformation to Revolution.
The Nation’s Gospel takes the reader on a journey to explore how the Christian faith has been spread in Britain since the Reformation.
This is living history, telling the stories of the Christian faith of past generations and its outworking in society, which has much to teach us today.
This book is the first in a unique four-volume work. Volume 1 (1516-1791) Reformation to Revolution, traces the stories of faith and the methods used to proclaim it from the beginning of the Reformation, through the persecution under Queen Mary, the Elizabethan period, the rise of Puritanism and the Civil War to the Wesleyan revival.
Author Jeremy Thomas spent his working life in the City as a corporate lawyer with the international law firm Ashurst. During this time, he made numerous contributions to a variety of legal periodicals, books and articles relating to public international law, human rights and general commercial law.
A splendid and unique achievement in providing a panoramic history of gospel work and growth in Britain from the Reformation onwards…This book beats with the same gospel heart as those faithful servants of Christ down the centuries, whose labours it records and celebrates. I warmly commend it.
Rev. David Jackman, Former President of the Proclamation Trust, London
This book offers an accessible, detailed, and rich account of what was done to advance the cause of Christ’s kingdom in sixteenth-century England…It is a humbling and inspiring account of our predecessors’ energetic and sacrificial attempts to spread the good news of the gospel.
Rev. Dr Garry J. Williams, Director of The John Owen Centre for Theological Study at the London Theological Seminary
