John Eliot's Mission to the Indians Before King Philip's War by Richard W. Cogley

Book Description

This text examines John Eliot's mission to the Indians through a dualistic approach. Richard Cogley delves into Eliot's theological writings and describes the historical development of Eliot's missionary work. By relating the two, he challenges the accepted assessments of the Puritan mission. Cogley incorporates Eliot's eschatology into the history of the mission, takes into account the biographies of proselytes (the "praying Indians") and the individual histories of the Christian Indian settlements (the "praying towns"), and corrects misperceptions about the mission's role in English expansion. He also addresses other interpretive problems in Eliot's mission, such as why the Puritans postponed their evangelizing mission until 1646, why Indians accepted or rejected the mission, and whether the mission played a role in causing King Philip's War.
