Worship even more than theology may be the key to a true understanding of the Church’s history, for through it people express their interpretation of theology and religion. In this third volume (chronologically) of a planned several-volume series, Professor Davies traces liturgy’s relationship to music, literature, and architecture; studies the effects of philosophical, social, and theological movements (18th century Rationalism, the Oxford Movement, the Evangelical Revival); and describes the techniques of such popular preachers and teachers as Whitefield and Wesley. There are chapters on Anglican, Congregational, Baptist, Presbyterian, Quaker, and Unitarian worship, forming a rich portrait of the varieties of Christian worship in England.Originally published in 1961.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

"The late Dr. John Gerstner referred to English and American Puritanism as "the most godly movement the Church has known since the days of the apostles themselves." Their teachings, their lifestyles, and their sense of worship grew out of their complete devotion to God's Word and His warrants." "There were close ties between the English Puritans and their American counterparts. Many of the early American Puritans were men who had fled their beloved England after the lamentable Great Ejection of 1662 to minister God's Word free of state control. In this book, Dr. Horton Davies, professor of religious history at Princeton University, explains the theology of Puritan worship; the sermonic style they employed; the Puritan understanding of praises, prayers, the sacraments; and even the theological significance of church architecture, among other topics. Here was worship that was truly Godcentered! Book jacket."--Jacket

Some businessmen, like Beron and the Faneuil brothers, thrived in Boston. From Huguenot lineage sprang four presidents of the United States
