When God was King: Rebels & Radicals of the Civil War & Mayflower Generation

When God was King: Rebels & Radicals of the Civil War & Mayflower Generation
This book is about the kind of society that gave rise to godly Protestants of the sixteeneth and seventeenth centuries. It .examines people who were driven by the overriding concern that Christian beliefs should dominate government and society, and a widespread belief that they were living in the 'End Time' and the return of Christ was at hand. They held the key to interpreting the chaotic events of their generation and the tools with which the immediate future could be predicted.

Noting the turbulence of the sixteenth and seventeeth centuries, it is not surprising that many of the godly Protestants of the time felt that God had appointed them to cleanse their nations of 'false religion' and vice, and they increasingly interpreted the mid-seventeenth-century upheavals as the fulfilment of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (representing Conquest, War, Famine and Death). Such people were inspired by access to English translations of the Bible that had been unthinkable before the middle of the sixteenth century. The book includes a timeline of key events at the outset and notes and a glossary at the end. It is in 15 chapters and 249 pp.
