Joel Beeke on Defining Puritanism

"Doctrinally Puritanism was a kind of vigorous Calvinism; experientially it was warm and contagious, evangelistically it was aggressive yet tender, ecclesiastically it was theocentric and worshipful, politically it aimed to be scripturally balanced and bound by conscience before God in the relations of kings, Parliament and subjects".
