Description

Anne Stott's latest book is an excellent example of the ways in which the religious, as well as the broader intellectual and political, currents of an age can be illuminated through the exploration of family connections. ... this is a well-researched, broadly based and sympathetic analysis of an under-explored dimension of an influential religious grouping.
