The Works of John Robinson, Pastor of the Pilgrim Fathers with a Memoir and Annotation by Robert Ashton

The republication of John Robinson’s Works is both timely and significant. It is timely, because the year 2009 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival in Leyden where their Pastor, John Robinson, would have his most influential impact upon them as a church. It is also significant because John Robinson is the indisputable link between the doctrines of John Calvin in church and religious life.
