The Pilgrim Church
By: E.H. Broadbent
Tracing the pathway of the forgotten saints from Pentecost to the Twentieth Century.
It ought to be obvious to even the casual observer of history that the real story of the church is not the one recorded in secular history. This classic work by E.H. Broadbent demonstrates that the true heart of this amazing drama is not even recorded in church history books.
This is the saga of those intrepid believers, "of whom the world was not worthy", who not only were persecuted by civil authorities, but were denounced, defamed, and decimated by the professing church.
Who were the Waldensians? The Lollards? The Stundists? The Anabaptists? These names were given by their enemies to those who claimed only the name of Christ, and who were prepared to suffer for His cause rather than submit to those man-made traditions that they believed contradicted the Word of God.
Written in an engaging style, the author will thrill your heart with the stories of unknown heroes of the faith. It will spur you on to greater devotion to the Lord Jesus and a deeper concern for His suffering people in many countries today.
Edmund Hamer Broadbent was born in Lancashire, England, in 1861. Through his personal study of the New Testament while still in his teens, he was convinced of the need to follow the pattern for the church found there. In his early twenties, business took him to Berlin, where he began a long and fruitful ministry to believers all across Europe and into Asia. His travels and research made him aware that since apostolic times there had always been movements to form local churches after the apostolic pattern, and he felt it would be useful to collect what could be known about them in an orderly sequence. This resulted in the publication of The Pilgrim Church. Broadbent was active in ministry until shortly before his death in 1945.
