Very rare little work on the history of the Baptists in Connecticut, with special emphasis on Isaac Backus and the period of the Great Awakening. Often attention is focused on the Presbyterians and Congregationalists, i.e. Jonathan Edwards, the Tennents, etc., during this period, so a unique work exploring Baptist energies during the period.
No other copies on the market.
