*Reviews:*

Dr Morrison's superb book is both timely and important.  Her argument is
not only fascinating in historical terms, but highly salient today.  Dr
Morrison shows how theological education was used by British colonial
rulers to suppress resistance in Jamaica in the period following the 1865
Morant Bay Rebellion. Her thesis is powerful, and her evidence detailed and
illuminating.  Her analysis offers lessons that we would all do well to
heed today, as we seek to redress the legacies of this period, and journey
towards justice in the aftermath of slavery and colonialism.

Dr Joanna Burch-Brown is a lecturer of Philosophy at the University of
Bristol.

Ruled by Britannia is a timely warning to the churches of Jamaica and
United Kingdom for abandoning their original role as liberators of the
African Jamaican. It is cry from the heart of one who observes her people
thrice disadvantaged. First by the transatlantic slave trade, then by the
denuding of Emancipation and now by the bastardizing of the religious,
social and cultural norms of the African Jamaican.  Perhaps the most
important contributions of this book are the results of the Focus Groups
whose conclusions prove to be fascinating, instructive, challenging and
hopeful. This book is an urgent message addressed primarily to the Jamaican
(Caribbean) church but it is also an invitation to every person of good
endeavour and I recommend it.

Rev. Dr Horace O Russell CD is Professor Emeritus of Historical Theology
and Dean of Chapel of Eastern Seminary, St. David's, USA and former
President of United Theological College of the West Indies, Kingston
Jamaica.

Rule by Britannia is very important contribution to Black Atlantic
Christianity. This work identifies and explores a subject of study that is
either ignored or excluded from religious and theological scholarship. It
is useful to church, academy and civil society by providing a
non-Eurocentric perspective of Christianity.  Dr Morrison is especially
qualified to unravel this much overdue study as a student and practitioner
of the diverse Black Atlantic theological tradition.

Revd. Dr Delroy A. Reid-Salmon, Pastor of Grace Baptist Chapel & Visiting
Fellow, Oxford Centre for Christianity and Culture, Regent's Park College.

*Title:* Slavery’s Heroes: George Liele and the Ethiopian Baptists of
Jamaica 1783 - 1865

*Volume: *1

*Author:* Dr Doreen Morrison

*ISBN:* 9781500657574

*Link:*

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slaverys-Heroes-Ethiopian-Baptists-1783-1865/dp/
1500657573/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1529237540&sr=1-1&
keywords=Slavery%27s+Heroes

*Reviews:*

Coinciding with the 230year anniversary of the establishing of the first
Baptist church in Jamaica by the Ethiopian Baptist society, Slavery's
Heroes documents its pioneers; the men and women who, led by George Liele,
advocated for a nation from enslavement to emancipation and beyond. This
work offers insight into a people, a faith and a movement which
demonstrated boldness, bravery and self-sacrifice, as it sought to achieve
freedom for generations of people it knew it would never meet.

Dr Morrison has chronicled for us ground-breaking work in ‘*Slavery's
Heroes*.’ For the first time we receive research with the quality of an eye
witness account on the Ethiopian Baptists who with George Liele introduced
Baptist work to Jamaica and the Caribbean and began a trail that led to the
emancipation of enslaved people in the Caribbean and the founding of
indigenous religions. This book is carefully researched and cogently argued.

Dr Noel L Erskine, Professor of Theology and Ethics, Emory University,
Georgia, USA.

Dr Morrison in this study of George Liele and his contemporaries has
demonstrated that the modern Christian missionary movement owes more to
African American Christianity than has previously been acknowledged. She
elucidates skilfully how they dealt with the catholicity and
particularities of the Christian faith in their obedience to God in its
transmission and in this lies their relevance for our times and place.

Rev Dr Horace O Russell, Emeritus Professor of Historical Theology and Dean
of Chapel, Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University, St David's,
USA; Formerly, President UTCWI, Kingston, Jamaica.

Slavery's Heroes constitutes required reading for all who search for a rich
historical resource for understanding the legacy of Baptist witness in
Jamaica between 1783 and 1865. Dr Morrison's familiarity with extant
original sources furnishes the tools for the coherent articulation of a
fresh interpretation that is both credible and compelling.
Dr Neville G Callam, General Secretary, Baptist World Alliance.


Both books are published by CreateSpace and available for purchase via
Waterstones, Amazon and other retail outlets.
