Eaton’s book is a meticulously researched study grounded in extensive Spanish and English primary sources. . . this is a valuable study that reminds us that, for British Protestants, not all overseas mission was directed to the tropical world.
Eaton’s work will likely remain the best of its kind for many years to come. ... Researchers in Victorian and Brethren missionary history, missiologists and Spanish missionaries will be most interested in this work. The book, or a summary of it, should be translated into Spanish, which would help correct the historical ‘amnesia’ amongst Spanish Protestants that Eaton so rightfully laments.
