Respected for his cooperative Puritanism, Greenham was a non-separatist Elizabethan pastor who remained faithful to the Church of England and loyal to the Crown. A fascinating portrait! 223 pages, hardcover.
Calvin College's John Primus describes and analyzes the life and thought of a major figure in English Puritanism. Richard Greenham's 21-year ministry in Dry Dayton, near Cambridge, has been described as one of the first attempts in England to construct a model puritan parish. Greenham's puritanism at its best, however, was moderate and not at all quarrelsome or schismatic. This first-ever book-length treatment of Greenham is a major contribution to the study of English puritanism.
