Book Reviews: On Books by G.A. Henty, George Gillespie, and George Grant

For the Temple: A Tale of the Fall of Jerusalem by G.A. Henty.

G.A. Henty was a renowned writer of adventure fiction for boys in Victorian England. Yet, his name is unknown today in a large number of families who would otherwise be introducing themselves to large helpings of historical fiction that the author penned.

A Dispute Against the English Popish Ceremonies Obtruded on the Church of Scotland by George Gillespie.

Our day has seen the inclusion of new and varied activities within the worship services of many Reformed churches.

The mid 17th century witnessed a similar debate.

The Micah Mandate by George Grant.

In previous works, George Grant has established himself as an articulate writer who is worthwhile to read. This book continues this reputation.
