There were close ties between the English Puritans and their American counterparts. Many of the early American Puritans were men who had fled their beloved England after the lamentable Great Ejection of 1662 to minister God's Word free of state control. In this book Dr. Horton Davies, professor of religious history at Princeton University, explains the theology of Puritan worship; the sermonic style they employed; the Puritan understanding of praises, prayers, the sacrements; and even the theological significance of church architecture, among other topics. Here was worship that was truly God centered.
This is the companion volume to Worship of the English Puritans, and was first published in 1990 by Peter Lang Publishing. Dr. Davies looks at the unique element of Puritan worship in New England. Topics covered include the theology of worship, sermons, music in worship, prayers, the sacraments, and several others. Quotes from many scarce Puritan works are given as part of the text.
