About the Author

Professor Peter Lineham has for many years written and lectured extensively on the religious history of New Zealand.


'This is a big book in every respect. Its pages are profusely and helpfully illustrated, the work of a scholar and a communicator . . . You will understand yourself the better for reading this book.' - Touchstone; 'A magisterial piece of social history' - The Anglican; 'If the age is over of the printed book as an intellectual and cultural object that can engage us by its physical presence and aesthetic form, someone has fortunately forgotten to tell Massey University Press.' - Douglas Hynd, Adjunct Research Fellow, Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture; 'Using church minute books, church histories, pamphlets, contemporary newspaper accounts and his own personal notes, Lineham has produced a highly readable book, well-illustrated and entertaining in style'. - Waiapu News
