Australian Christian Life is an admirable introduction to the early days of christianity in Australia. The author draws on many sources to piece together a remarkable picture of the people and churches of early Australia.
The book dispels a number of misconceptions. It puts right the illusion that Australia has always been essentially secular and that it has never seen revivals. It also addresses the error that the main problem for the church today lies in the unique nature of modern society.
Overall a job well done.
