The Public Worship of the English Free Churches

The Rev Andrew L Drummond, BD, Ph D, STM, Alva

Andrew L  Drummond provides an assessment in three sections.  The first clears away misconceptions regarding wholesale puritan rejection of set forms in the seventeenth century and traces 18th century evolution in the Independent or Congregational tradition and the rise of Methodism; the second looks at the effects of the increasingly Unitarian character of the older English Presbyterianism; and the third sets out from the ‘epoch-making’ work of Dr John Hunter to survey twentieth century developments.
