ENGLISH PURITANS bro652
ENGLISH PURITANS, BROWN, J- Brown, in short compass, outlines the rise and triumph and decline of the Puritan movement. He tells us about the movement's origins amongst those whom we may call the "Puritans before Puritanism." Under all its forms, reverence for the Scriptures and for the sovereign majesty of God, a strict morality, popular sympathies and a fervent attachment to the cause of civil freedom have been the signs and tokens of the puritan spirit. The author was a respected Congregational pastor who lived from 1830-1922 and an accomplished author and historian. 160 pp.
