Barnes (Bishop of Birmingham) comments on BR after reading Wood's book:

"I should also have admitted that much that he said on the Quaker side (if I may so put it) during the war was not in any way provocative: he was vilely abused for saying things which today are the commonplaces of Christian pulpits." "When you oppose his views to those of the Roman Church I began to be uneasy: in theory I prefer Rome to Russell, in practice Russell with his honesty would be far pleasanter to deal with than Rome with its evasions."
