Editorial Reviews

Review

This handsome, well-written book provides perhaps the most enlightening report we have had on New England Puritanism. It persuasively describes piety as the operating force of the religious phenomenon that has been the subject of so much investigation.
—Everett Emerson, American Literature

Hambrick-Stowe shatters the popular image of neurotic Puritans searching anxiously, almost pathetically, for signs of salvation. The men and women who appear in this book derived joy, excitement, even sensual fulfillment from the contemplation of God.
--T. H. Breen, The Historian

Hambrick-Stowe's central and stunning achievement in this book is his capacity for describing clearly and even movingly the dynamic of Puritan piety. This book will be widely read and discussed by historians of American religious history, but it ought to be read as well by pastors and lay people. It will tell anyone who delves into it something about themselves and even more about the nature of the Christian life, and it does so in clear, graceful prose.
