    One thought on “The Pilgrim Church”

    1. Broadbent writes with the dramatic flair of an apologist, but with the atonal precision of an historian. This is obviously a topic dear to his heart. It’s not an exciting read, but an awful lot of data is presented, and if you're seriously interested in the topic, you’ll find it captivating. I did, so much so that I was able to forgive Broadbent’s bias (he tends to classify everyone into three divisions: Catholic, heathen and Christian).Broadbent was born in England in 1861, and this is a [...]

    2. Broadbent introduces the history of those Christian groups which have, throughout the centuries, sought a return to a simple expression of new testament church life without the baggage of denominational labels.Wonderful, inspiring, scholarly, heart warming, prophetic.

    3. I would give 10 stars if there would be! That is must-read book. It helps to understand why Christianity is in such a mess today as it is.

    4. A fantastic introductory Church History book for "those who have not much time for reading or research" Broadbent has done an amazing job, although his leanings toward the Open Brethren, so called, are apparent in his criticism of Darby, when he covers the history of the British Brethren in the 1800's. Great Church history book none the less, excellent for quick over view of the line of life throughout the centuries.

    5. A tremendous work. Broadbent breathes life into the skeleton of church history, showing a side of the Christian story that has often been ignored, denied and otherwise marginalized by the mainstream church.The more I consider this book and the people who are written about therein, the more I am amazed by Mr. Broadbent's broadmindedness.

    6. for those of us that love history of the church this is a must read. The Pilgrim church pressents the view of the remnant, the group of dissidents that uphold the truth of the Bible even before the Reformation. Greatly recommended. I love it!

    7. Lots of history Enjoyable I learned a lot about early churches a history I was previously unaware of. I would recommended it .

    8. Tracing the pathway of the forgotten saints from Pentecost to the Twentieth Century. Where is the true church now? An easy read. A book which should be found in every believers library.
