'...both a useful introduction to novices and a thought-provoking analysis for those already familiar with much of the literature.' - J.A.I. Champion, Journal of Ecclesiastical History'This study is a splendid addition to the reading list. It is written for intelligent undergraduates treading the unfamiliar ground of religious history and admirably performs this duty. Having had the pleasure of employing this text as primary reading for such a course I can say, without reservation, that Dr Spurr has plugged an historiographical gap splendidly and has seriously enhanced the literature on Puritanism.' - History, the Journal of the Historical Association'Well-chosen quotations from contemporary sources bring out clearly the flavour of the period.' - R.C. Richardson, Times Higher Education Supplement
