There has, arguably, been no more pure worship since the days of the Apostles than that of the English Puritans of the 17th century. It was Christ-centered, Scripture-based, and reverential. God was the focus of all the elements of worship. He was the focus of the preaching, the praying, and the praises. This book explains the crux of reformed worship. Horton Davies, professor of religious history at Princeton University, wrote this classic work as his doctoral thesis in the 1940's. It has long been one of the most sought after books on the used books market, and is now in print once again. (This Soli Deo Gloria reprint is from 1997).
