This was too dry to be a good read. The title was fascinating to me, the contents were not. ( )

A small concise book describing the Puritan beliefs and society as it related to the family. It was very clear, enlightening, giving me a much clearer picture of everyday life in Puritan Society than I've gathered from any other source. ( )

Great introduction to the lives of 17th century Puritan communities in New England, including marriage, parent-child relations, education, and worshop. A little too thin, perhaps, in the area of economics and property ownership, and what influence that may have had on inter- and intra-family relationships. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061312274, Paperback)

The Puritans came to New England not merely to save their souls but to establish a "visible" kingdom of God, a society where outward conduct would be according to God's laws. This book discusses the desire of the Puritans to be socially virtuous and their wish to force social virtue upon others.
