Summary

This book offers a portrait of Scottish Puritanism in the two generations leading up to the National Convent of 1638. The author examines the construction of a Puritan community, attitudes towards the Bible, the place of the feminine in Scottish divinity, and the development of ideas about predestination, covenanting, and the relationship between church and state.
