Item description for William Grimshaw of Haworth by Faith Cook...
Overview Faith Cook has drawn on unpublished and little-known sources to produce this comprehensive new biography of the man of whom John Wesley said, 'A few such as him would make a nation tremble. He carries fire wherever he goes'. John MacArthur, of Grace to You ministries, writes: 'Grimshaw's unflagging energy and vigorous defence of the faith was matched by a charitable spirit that was a model of true Christlikeness . . . a surprising measure of what he said and wrote is germane to the times in which we live. This is a welcome addition to the rich treasure trove already available from the Banner of Truth. It is also a classic example of what a good biography ought to be.'

Reviews - What do customers think about William Grimshaw of Haworth?
A valuable missing link Nov 24, 2006
Most of us within the Protestant tradition/faith have read a biography of one or more of the major participants of the Great Awakening. But this biography of Grimshaw is a valuable addition that has been hitherto much neglected.
It appears that the latest edition of "Through Many Dangers: The Story of John Newton" by Brian H. Edwards has been updated with more information on the meeting/s between Newton and Grimshaw as a result of Cook's book.
William Grimshaw of Haworth has a handy index, a couple of very nice photographs and is published by Banner of Truth, from whom we know we will always have a non-compromising Christian perspective.
I note in the introduction to my Penguin copy of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights has a mention of Grimshaw. (The Brontës lived in Haworth, Yorkshire). If I hadn't read Faith Cook's excellent biography I wouldn't have known a thing about Grimshaw at all and would have felt quite lost.
