The seventh section of An Anthology of the Early Baptists in Rhode Island is An editorial review from the Christian Review, January 1851, of James Granger's "Review of a Report, presented to the Warren Baptist Association." A quote from it that follows could as easily been written today:

We cannot, however, forbear expressing our gratification that this question has arisen and elicited the investigation which it has already received. No Christian denomination has been so indifferent to its history as our own. Our fathers have been left to sleep in unhonored graves. The labors they performed—the sufferings they endured—the heroic characters they bore—have alike been forgotten. The books which, amid penury and toil, they wrote in defense of their persecuted faith, are almost wholly unknown to those who now possess the noble heritage of religious freedom and Christian truth which they bequeathed. It is time for the honor of our name, as a Christian people, that this indifference were broken up, and that we began to study for ourselves, and to teach to our children, the lives and deeds of the founders and fathers of our churches.
