The Puritans dedicated their lives to consistent study of the Bible, treasured devotional feelings and close communion with God. As a people, they wanted to eliminate impurities in the church in the area of secularity and corruption and promoted religion and the impact and it’s power it has on people. Benjamin Brook wrote The Lives of the Puritans with the mindset that it be a historical narrative of facts.
