Baptist History, From the Foundation of the Christian Church to the Close of the Eighteenth Century. 2nd Edition. Complete and Unabridged. by J. M. Cramp.
In review of this work, C. H. Spurgeon wrote,
“Dr. Cramp has long been a laborious, painstaking student of ecclesiastical history, and his works have been distinguished by some of the higher qualities of a historian. His book on Baptist History is not intended for students; at least, it is thrown into a popular mould, and will be more acceptable to general readers, to whom we most heartily recommend it. All Baptists should possess a copy, and even those of our readers who do not sympathise with our view of the ordinance of baptism, will probably be glad to know what the immersionists have to say about themselves. The time is past, we hope, when religious rancour forbids one body of believers to take an interest in another. The work is pleasantly written, and so tastefully produced, that it would form an acceptable gift to our young men and maidens.”
