The Puritan Dilemma

Just finished The Puritan Dilemma- the story of John Winthrop by Edmund S. Morgan. This is an excellent book. If you have Congregationalist or Presbyterian roots, then you should read this book.

It was eye opening to me in the sense that I consider myself Presbyterian. But the early stages of the battles between Congregationalists and Presbyterians show that my denomination, at least, the CREC, is more Congregational than Presbyterian. That explains a lot actually. We are a hybrid and would do better, methinks, to lean more towards true Presbyterianism in the future.
