COMMENTS ABOUT GEOFFREY'S PREVIOUS BOOKS
"Enough to whet the appetite, not enough to bore. The details are invariably well presented." - Oxford Times
"A fount of information, not only about the people but about the movements which sprung up from time to time." - Our Inheritance
"A wealth of material under one cover... pitched at the level of the average church member." - Scottish Baptist Magazine
"Readable and easy to digest... if like me you are inquisitive and wonder how some of the movements and missions that we are so familiar with came into being, then this book is for you. I thoroughly recommend it!" - Evangelism Today
"Fascinating and inspiring insights into many lives." - Methodist Recorder
"A master of precis, tables, pictures, and mini-articles on men and movements ancillary to the subject being written about. Sadly,many Christians are quite ignorant about the origins of their beliefs, and the giants of their faith. The general excuse is that history is boring. Mr Hanks has removed that excuse forever. In an exciting way, he brings the past back to life, and once picked up, his book is very hard to put down. - Highly commended." - Mike Adams
