Primus describes and analyzes the life and thought of a major figure in English Puritanism.
Greenham's twenty-one year ministry in Dry Dayton, near Cambridge, has been described as one of the first attempts in England to construct a model puritan parish.
Greenham's puritanism at its best, however, was a moderate, temperate, cooperative, irenic puritanism, not at all quarrelsome or schismatic.
Greenham was a nonseparatist puritan pastor who remained faithful to the Church of England and loyal to the Crown.This first-ever book-length treatment of Greenham is a major contribution to the study of English puritanism.
