Well worth the investment in time and $, Shelley's history is wide-ranging and accessible, written out of a devout Protestant perspective but never flinching from the appalling and inexcusable ways in which the Visible Church has often behaved.  Shelley's portrait aligns with the "already and not yet" reality of an Invisible Church being constructed, as a work of the Spirit, like a house of cards in a whirlwind--a seeming impossibility, nevertheless we catch rare but crystal-clear glimpses of this miracle wrought from the hand of the One who "commands the very wind and waves."
