 Ian Randall has given us the most comprehensive overview of Baptist life in Europe since the classic study of J. H. Rusbrooke in 1923. Born amidst persecutions and struggle, the Baptist movement has grown over the centuries into a diverse but vibrant expression of the Christian faith. A story masterfully told by a superb historian. --Timothy George (Founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama/USA, and a senior editor of Christianity Today)

This fascinating volume is more than a compilation of the stories of the regional beginnings of the one European Baptist family; it is a testimony of the enduring grace and goodness of God to a missionary people called Baptist. --David Coffey (President of the Baptist World Alliance).
