Reviews

“I am quite certain that there is no competing work that covers precisely this ground. Pettit’s [work] is organized and written with the kind of clarity and authority that can only emerge from a long scholarly career. Anyone interested in the 'Matter' of New England Protestantism will want to read this book, especially because, considering its range and complexity, it is remarkably concise.” – John McWilliams, Middlebury College

"This book explores the Puritan quest for assurance of salvation in four chapters that survey the spiritual landscape from Luther and Calvin to William Ellery Channing and Horace Bushnell. The book is clearly written and convincingly argued ... The author knows this territory well. He writes with clarity and an assurance of his own that provides the reader with an uncomplicated view of the figures he examines." - Mason I. Lowrance, Jr., Professor of English and American Literature, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
