The Early English Baptist Distinctive
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"In the midst of numerous books on the worship wars, how refreshing to find one based on history, fact, and deep theological reflection. Yet, Pure Worship is instantly readable and fascinating."
--Paige Patterson, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas
"Having read deeply in seventeenth-century Puritanism, Matthew Ward offers here an illuminating thesis. He argues that English Baptists were compelled liturgically and theologically by the need to worship God purely. Travel with a scholarly writer through the literature yet also be prepared to be gripped with a profound desire for humanity's proper response to God and His salvation."
--Malcolm B. Yarnell III, Professor of Systematic Theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas
