A most excellent volume and a must read for those interested in Puritan culture and it ultimate effect on ours.
I found this book extreamly fasinating. To anyone who has knowledge of, or is interested in learning further details of our Puritan forefathers, this volume is a must. The Puritans were, arguably, some of the most spiritually insightful people to ever grace this planet. They left a treasure of spiritual literature that is unsurpassed in history. But turly, David Stannard's book title speaks for itself. Stannard, in a fair, and often sympathetic narrative, describes how these Godly but imperfect people understood their world, their faith, and their relationship with their creator. They understood death as the ultimate reality and were, by God's grace, determined to prepare for it - something few in our time are concerned with doing.Was this review helpful?
