William Brewster: The Making of a Pilgrim
By Sue Allan
Paperback, 116 pages
Author and historian Sue Allan has extensively researched Brewster’s early years in Scrooby and elsewhere in England, and here presents an original and insightful view of how he developed into the man who would spiritually lead and nurture the congregation at Plymouth Colony.
In order to understand Brewster, the man, it is necessary to study the life and times within which he developed as a youth. A study of his family – his father, mother, grandparents, and siblings – provides the foundation.
At the conclusion, the reader of this book will have a much greater sense of who Pilgrim William Brewster was, and how he developed and later inﬂuenced the Mayﬂower Pilgrims and their church.
