Product Description


'This book, a revised version of one published in 1992, is an over-all picture of Victorian Nonconformity. It will enlighten those who know nothing about it, and delight those who thought they did. [...] Yet Nonconformity has a bad press, affected by inaccurate stereotypes portrayed by Matthew Arnold and Charles Dickens. No one is better equipped to present an accurate picture than Professor Bebbington, who is the greatest living authority on the subject. [...] This account is full of fascinating details and heart-warming illustrations.' --Joy Horn, Cranleigh Baptist Church in Evangelicals Now, May 2012

'As David Bebbington shows in this excellent introduction, thoroughly revised and updated from a text originally published in 1992, Protestant Nonconformity was numerically thriving and culturally significant in Victorian England. ... This judicious and persuasive work, amply illustrated from contemporary sources and modern scholarship, is highly recommended.' --Martin Wellings, in: Theology, September/October 2012

...David Bebbington has succeeded admirably in presenting a concise, throught-provoking, almost comprehensive, balanced, and clear over-view of Victorian Nonconformity, from the 1830s to the first decade of the twentieth century. --Denis Paz, Reviews in Religion and Theology, volume 20, Issue 1, 2013

...The continuing value and appeal of Victorian Nonconformity will particularly be to undergraduates and taught postgraduates, Bebbington covering a huge amount of ground in limited space and combinig pithy and judicious assessments with telling illustrations, revealing how 'Victorian Nonconformity formed a vibrant Chrstian counter-culture', thereby tempering the movement's historically negative image... --Clive D. Field, Proceedings of the Wesley Historical Society, Volume 59 Part 1, February 2013. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Victorian Nonconformity 18 Mar. 2014
By Rick Shrader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is another excellent book on English church history by David Bebbington. For those who feel a kinship with the progress of the gospel and chapels in that unique age, this book is an easy but satisfying read.
