Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Brown has written a book that will reward both the statistician and the generalist. He has filled many of the gaps in our understanding of the social texture of the lives of Nonconformist ministers during a century of great change. He has done that with clarity and grace, and he leaves his reader with a strong sense of the contributions made by those men of obscure destinies and homely joys."—American Historical Review

"The statistical material Brown has compiled is very valuable and will ensure that the book continues to be widely used for many years to come."—Journal of Modern History

"Brown has written a straightforward social history of the Nonconformist ministry in the form of a truly model collective biography"—Journal of British Studies
