Century of Puritanism, and a Century of Its Opposites: With Results Contrasted to Enforce Puritan Principles, and to Trace What Is Peculiar in the People of Lynn to What Is Peculiar in Its History (Classic Reprint) by Parsons Cooke (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Century of Puritanism, and a Century of Its Opposites: With Results Contrasted to Enforce Puritan Principles, and to Trace What Is Peculiar in the People of Lynn to What Is Peculiar in Its History The people of Lynn are race of imitators. They are in one sense, if t in the best sense, a peculiar people. And they have the advantage, or disadvantage, of being well kwn abroad. But the causes which have made them what they are, are t so well kwn abroad. Yet they should be. For such a kwledge is capable of being turned to a rich account. The religious history of the town has been very peculiar, and in that are found the sources of the existing peculiarities of the people. And all the remarkable turns of the history give illustration of the force of important principles of Christianity. This work was first produced in the form of lectures for the pulpit; and that form is w only partially thrown off.
