“There never has been a time . . . when a proper appreciation of the spirit and principles of the Reformers was so necessary as at present.” James Mc Cabe, Cross and Crown, preface.
James McCabe wrote these words in 1873, alarmed at the rapid rate at which Protestantism in America was falling to Rome. Cross and Crown: The Sufferings and Triumphs of the Heroic Men and Women who Were Persecuted for the Religion of Jesus Christ, is an account of the persecutions suffered by Protestants of Northern Italy, France and England during the 16th and 17th centuries. It is also a warning of the inroads Romanism was making in America in the 1800s.

“Let us acquaint ourselves so thoroughly with the principles of the Reformers that we may be able to make them our guides through life, and to defend them from the attacks of Rome and its allies…Let us hold fast to our open Bible…let us bring into our daily life, and live up to them, those great principles of the Reformation which are the very basis of our civil and religious freedom, and we need not fear for the future.” James Mc Cabe, Cross and Crown, preface.
