Another interesting audio with Dr. VanDixhoorn. I really enjoy the details of the Westminster Assembly he brings out from his years of study. It is incredible how corrupt the whole church system was in the confusion of church and state that was England and Europe in general. Thanks.

Something about your link to the book is faulty. It goes to a “not found” page.
Perhaps this one works? : http://www.heritagebooks.org/products/gods-ambassadors-the-westminster-assembly-and-the-reformation-of-the-english-pulpit-1643-1653-van-dixhoorn.html
