William Romaine is a much-neglected figure of eighteenth-century Evangelicalism. This book is the first modern biography of a complex and often bittersweet character. Drawing from original and often little-known sources, Tim Shenton provides a clear, consistent, and remarkably fair portrait of Romaine and the times in which he lived. But this biography is more than a bare record of events. It is the story of a Christian who, though plagued by his own imperfections, was able to persevere as a shining light in a dark and confusing world.
Tim Shenton is the head teacher of St Martin's School and an elder at Lansdowne Baptist Church, Bournemouth. He is married with two daughters. He has researched and written extensively on church history, specializing in the eighteenth century, and is also author of Forgotten heroes of revival and two books for younger readers - Readings from James and The life of Abraham, all published by Day One.
