From AudioFile:

Coffin's work, first published in 1879, takes a view ofhistory that many may find foreign to modern thinking. Basically, theauthor sees the Hand of God at work in establishing human freedom. ToCoffin, liberty is obedience to God (as defined in Scripture) and notdoing what the majority says. The author also has a strongCalvinistic/anti-Catholic view. Edward Lewis's reading is donewell. His clear voice has a staccato rhythm that may remind some of abroadcast reporter. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine -- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
