Exiled immerses the reader in the dark days of 17th century England, a time when a man could be drawn and quartered for nothing more than standing on a corner preaching his views. There is no freedom... This description may be from another edition of this product.

Absolutely love this book

This insightful book gave a brilliant look into the life of Rev John Lothrop. A true unsung hero! I feel like I have a far greater understanding of my 10 times Great-Grandfather than I ever anticipated, all thanks to the Author for this beautiful book!

A must read of American Religious History

This book was so insightful, inspirational, and uplifting. Despite loss, tragedy, heartache, and persecution, John Lathrop is a man of honor and key in American History and the right to worship freely.

Exiled

Very well researched and written. Done in a novel format, but kept to accurate historical information.

Wonderful Book

This wis a great book that keeps your attention as you read. Well told story while at the same time giving good facts about the life of John Lathrop. Very highly recommend reading it.

Great book!

I loved it! I was very surprised when I came to the end of the book to discover who were descendants of this great man. Actually, some of the names didn't surprise me at all. What a great man. What a great book! I highly recommend it.

The story of a man's fight to be true to his conscience

This book is the story of John Lathrop, an early English non-conformist, and his fight for religious freedom.Accounts of people like William Tyndale, John Wycliff and other similar champions of Christianity and freedom are hard to come by these days. Foxe's Book of Martyrs and other similar works contain thumbnail sketches of these champions of religious liberty that had so much to do with the establishment of America. There are extensive scholarly works on some of these figures. But it is difficult to find a popular work that has sufficient depth to really understand the struggles that these people went through to establish religious liberty as a tenet of Western Civilization.This book fills in this gap. It is the story of an English Minister who is forced into exile because his conscience will not allow him to agree completely with his church.It is historical and derived from primary sources, but is told in a conversational style much like that of Alan Eckert in his early American historical works. This form of writing flows smoother and is more appealing to someone looking for a good story in addition to learning more information on historical figures and periods.As an American, I found it particularly interesting as it documented the history of a representative figure who fled the Old World for the New to find religious liberty.I recommend it for adolescents and adults who would appreciate learning more of this early American immigrant and the causes that led to so many similar immigrants coming to America. The genealogy list of descendants of John Lathrop notes that over half of the 43 Presidents of the United States were (and are since GWB is also related) related to this man.
