A little disappointing and thin but enough interesting tidbits about the puritans to make it interesting... Really fascinating that one of the most vociferous believers (to the point he didn't beleive he should pray witn anyone who wasn't a "visible saint") was also the person MOST in favor of keeping state and church separate, and ended up founding the only colony that absolutely guaranteed freedom of religion.
