to my colleagues Anne and Jim Lawlor of the Bahamas Historical Society on the long awaited publication of their book The Harbour Island Story.
The Harbour Island Story is a well documented, informative and entertaining account of the island which was once second in importance to New Providence within the Bahamian archipelago. Drawing on new material from official, church, oral and private sources, and containing numerous illustrations, this book adds greatly to our knowledge of Harbour Island specifically and The Bahamas generally and is a significant addition to Bahamian historiography. The Harbour Island Story is a must for Bahamians, visitors, scholars, students and the general public.
While I anticipate the entire book will be a worthwhile read, I am especially interested in the chapter Jim did on the religion of Harbour Island which, I hope, I will provide additional insight into the historical development of the church in the Bahamian Out Islands.
