J. A. Wylie (1808-1890) is considered by many to be one of the best religious historians of all time. While he penned many books during his lifetime, he is undoubtedly best known for this collection, The History of Protestantism.
Originally published as 24 books in 1878, this series is available again either as single eBooks, or grouped into the original three volumes, just as the author intended.
This great work begins with the first century A.D. and follows through to the Glorious Revolution in Great Britain in 1688. Though Wylie was a Presbyterian minister, this collection has been treasured by Protestants across all denominations for generations, and doubtless for generations to come.
This edition has been tirelessly formatted for your eReader, complete with an Active Table of Contents, and thoroughly linked end notes that will go to and from the text.
