"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

"The horror story of the Huguenot persecution after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes from the early 1680s to the Edict of Toleration in 1787, needs to be retold by looking at some of the positive benefits the refugees brought to the lands to which they escaped. The brutality of the dragonnades, gallows, and hangings cannot be overlooked nor the gradual oppression of a considerable proportion of the population of France
Worship and theology in England by Horton Davies( Book )

26 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a rich survey encompassing music, art, literature, and architecture, Professor Davies studies the revolution in religious thought and worship in England during the Victorian era. One main trend, the return to conservatism, is revealed in the renascence of Roman Catholic worship, the Oxford Movement, and the search for traditional architecture and liturgy. This impetus was balanced by the drive toward innovation, through the Social Gospel, the Church's confrontation with science, and the new forms of worship sought by the Baptists, Congregationalists, and others. This is the fourth in a five-volume series
