  1. Eric Gillian (verified owner)

    Well defined emphases and laid out well historically. Accomplishes both the need for accurate data around important events, yet also motivating and inspiring to those who would remain true to the Wesleyan Way. Reads like a novel and not a history book. Pastor Rick Gillian Chipley Florida
