Description

" . . . the typical Puritans were not wild men, fierce and freaky, religious fanatics and social extremists, but sober, conscientious, and cultured citizens, persons of principle, determined and disciplined excelling in the domestic virtues, and with no obvious shortcomings save a tendency to run to words when saying anything important, whether to God or to a man.  At last the record has been put straight."  -- J. I. Packer


" Worldly Saints provides a revealing treasury of primary and secondary evidence for understanding the Puritans, who they were, what they believed, and how they acted.  This is a book of value and interest for scholars and students, clergy and laity alike."  -- Roland Mushat Frye, University of Pennsylvania
