The Pupils of St. John the Divine

Передня обкладинка
This little book has been composed on the principle of following as far as may be the life of the Apostle himself, then those of his immediate disciples, and beyond them of the persons who had been instructed by their teaching; then of showing how the churches thus formed met trial and persecution, and, as far as possible, sketching the vicissitudes of their history to the present time. - Preface.
