This book is an exceptionally valuable contribution to the religious historu of both Ireland and Europe, firmly set within the revisionist agenda of contemporary religious historians, and will be required reading for anyone who wants to know more about the development of Irish Presbyterianism in this crucial period of Irish history. - Nigel Yates, American Historical Review
It is the transcendent merit of this book that breathes life into its complex subject matter: Holmes has effectively rescued his Presbyterians as much from the depredations of their eulogists as from their detractors. In so doing, he combines a highly impressive historiographal and contextual grasp with an equally exhaustive range of primary evidence. He assesses these highly complex materials with care, organises his thoughts with precision and logic, and expresses his arguments with lucidity. The skills on display are of a very high order: this is an extremely impressive professional debut. - Alvin Jackson, Scottish Historical Review
