I found this book absolutely Amazing Edmund Morgan does a great job of showing the puritans and the heart behind what they did and why they lived the way they did It showed a people that endeavoured to live to the glory of God and have God reign supreme in their relations to one another I particularly liked how he, Morgan, showed the puritans view of Slavery This is a very touchy topic especially concerning the puritans because of how they are heralded as the gold standard of life and living I found this book absolutely Amazing Edmund Morgan does a great job of showing the puritans and the heart behind what they did and why they lived the way they did It showed a people that endeavoured to live to the glory of God and have God reign supreme in their relations to one another I particularly liked how he, Morgan, showed the puritans view of Slavery This is a very touchy topic especially concerning the puritans because of how they are heralded as the gold standard of life and living in relation to God.The two lessons I walked away with are firstly that God created life with a hierarchy, not in the sense of power and domineering but in the sense of responsibility and duty This is seen throughout all creation and the puritans were very big on this It is the duty of those placed above to guide, love and or protect those below because that is the example of Scripture The Christian should honour this hierarchy and glorify God as he relates to others The sec
