This book tells the story of the life of two remarkable nineteenth century citizens, John and Ann Goodlet. Their work, which was an expression of their Christian faith, contributed to the building of the economy of the colony of NSW and the Kingdom of God in NSW and beyond. They were deeply involved in the founding and development of the Presbyterian Church, the Sydney City Mission, Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, YWCA, YMCA, AMP, PLC and St Andrew's College. They were prominent in the rescue of prostitutes, caring for consumptives and the development of a defence force.
I love this book... it is the best type of history... it is an invaluable, and major, history of philanthropy." - Stuart Piggin, Associate Professor, Macquarie University, Sydney
