"A solid, scholarly collection, recommended for graduate and specialist libraries." D.G. Paz, Religious Studies Review "...the essays in this volume represent important revisions and penetrating new insights, and should be studied carefully by any and all who would understand religion and politics in late eighteenth-century Britain." Jeff Chamberlain, Anglican Theological Review "This volume attests to the continuing vitality and fruitfulness of this line of historical inquiry, making an important contribution to the debate over the politics and culture of those Britons refusing to conform to the established church. ...Enlightenment and Religion powerfully enriches our understanding of its subject. Anyone interested in the variables of British religious experience or in eighteenth-century political culture will profit handsomely from reading this book." Philip Hicks, Journal of Modern History
