Review of The Last Puritans

Our executive director and resident historian Peggy Bendroth has a new book, and the Washington Book Review has said some very nice things about it:

The Last Puritans is a much needed scholarly book on the history of Congregationalists. It gives deep insight into the role that Congregationalism and other Christian denominations played in making America what it is today. It is meticulously researched and well written. Everybody interested in American history and religions will find this book to be of immense value.

If you'd like to learn more on the topic and discuss it with Dr. Bendroth herself, you can attend our upcoming History Matters event on March 23rd.
