    Well researched and presented

    Posted by Roger L. Leonard on Nov. 11, 2017

    The information here is presented from diligent research and quotes from many sources. The book clearly shows that the church/kingdom was physically in existence in England (long before the Campbells came to Amerca), although not somewhat obscure to the masses. It is interesting to read the beliefs of William Tyndale and how he seems to have been a member of the Lord's church. I am not finished reading this wonderful book, but like what I have read thus far.
