From Here We Changed The World
Amazing Stories of Pilgrims and Rebels from North Nottinghamshire and West Lincolnshire by Adrian Gray
From the villages and market towns of a quiet corner of England, men and women have for centuries set out on spiritual and geographical quests to change the world. This book is the story of how a few people have influenced hundred of millions of others across the globe, over the last few centuries and down to the present day.
A small area of north Nottinghamshire and west Lincolnshire has had a huge impact on the development of the Christian faith, since 1540 especially. From this area have come of the great martyrs of the English Reformation, the leading puritans of Elizabethan England, the “Separatists” who became the “Mayflower” Pilgrims, and the founders of the Baptist, Quaker and Methodist denominations.
Adrian Gray’s book provides an outline of the story and a detailed commentary on what should be known or seen in some of the key places of the region either side of the River Trent. It is a story of martyrdom, sacrifice and unbelievable bravery, of shipwreck, cannibalism and yet extraordinary service to others, of miracles and the spread of the Gospel.
