    "The Last Puritans is a splendid contribution to American religious history. Analyzing the doings of Congregationalists from early seventeenth-century New England through the present, Margaret Bendroth demonstrates how the denomination most symbolically integrated into American origins--the Mayflower, the City on a Hill, Thanksgiving, and all. George Santayana has books on Goodreads with ratings. George Santayana’s most popular book is The Sense of Beauty.

    In The American Puritans, Dustin Benge and Nate Pickowicz tell the story of the first hundred years of Reformed Protestantism in New England through the lives of nine key figures: William Bradford, John Winthrop, John Cotton, Thomas Hooker, Thomas Shepard, Anne Bradstreet, John Eliot, Samuel Willard, and Cotton Mather.. Here is sympathetic yet informed history, a book that corrects many myths.   Edwards's book (together with True Virtue), Noll suggests, is "perhaps the best place to encounter both the breathtaking vision of divine glory and the human strain required to take in that vision." I agree. So does David Brand in his book, Profile of the Last : Crossway.
