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. 

The unique characteristic of the Pilgrims was their separatist stand. However, their legacy was also one of tolerance toward those that differed with them; attempting to focus on what could unite and a desire to be used by the God they loved to bring peace between those with whom they disagreed. For this purpose, Robinson seeks to unite the reformed churches in Europe by clarifying and defending the theology and practice of Christian Self-government.
