Publisher's Summary

On fire for God - a sweeping history of puritanism in England and America.  

Begun in the mid-16th century by Protestant nonconformists keen to reform England's church and society while saving their own souls, the puritan movement was a major catalyst in the great cultural changes that transformed the early modern world. Providing a uniquely broad transatlantic perspective, this groundbreaking volume traces puritanism's tumultuous history from its initial attempts to reshape the Church of England to its establishment of godly republics in both England and America, and its demise at the end of the 17th century.   

Shedding new light on puritans whose impact was far-reaching as well as on those who left only limited traces behind them, Michael Winship delineates puritanism's triumphs and tribulations, and shows how the puritan project of creating reformed churches working closely with intolerant godly governments evolved and broke down over time in response to changing geographical, political, and religious exigencies.

Critic Reviews

"Hot Protestants is a fine work of scholarship, written in a gracefully understated style, and is among the fairest and most readable accounts of the glorious failure that was trans-Atlantic Puritanism." (Barton Swaim, Wall Street Journal)

"Winship has established himself as a leading authority on the history of the Puritans. While many works have focused on a specific aspect of Puritan history . . . there are fewer works that show Puritanism as a multinational movement in Europe and the Americas. This book fills those gaps." (Jeffrey Meyer, Library Journal)

"The rise and fall of transatlantic puritanism is told through political, theological, and personal conflict in this exceptional history. . . . With a clear narrative tied together with helpful clarifications, Winship's cogent work nicely lays out the history of how puritans emerged from Protestantism." (Publishers Weekly)

Appalling narrator

Content interesting but DREADFUL narrator - where do they get these people?? Waste of a credit - had to get print copy as I repeatedly tried to listen but the delivery was too intrusively awful.

Fascinating work.

A great read/listen for anyone who had ancestors on the Mayflower or has an interest in the roots of Protestant thought as we know it.
