The Genius of Puritanism

The Genius of PuritanismThe Genius of Puritanism by Peter Lewis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Thought this was an excellent summary of Puritan thought and how necessary it is for the church never to forget the tokens of grace that they have left for us. I particularly enjoyed the focus on Christian depression and the remedies that were provided. The author also had a pretty good balance of quotes from a variety of Puritan sources.
