COMING SOON

Release Date: 1 November 2021

Mayflower and the Pilgrim Fathers

Christian historian Philip Quenby investigates the ideas and motivations that brought the Pilgrim Fathers to the New World, setting them alongside King James’ contrasting autocratic vision for church and state.

What special claim do these people have on our attention? The answer is: an idea, a book and an inheritance. The idea was freedom of conscience, the book was the Geneva Bible and the inheritance was the accumulation of English liberties bound up in all that Magna Carta has come to symbolise.

Remembering how and why the Pilgrim Fathers stood firm against overbearing state power is vital. By learning from the past, we can find hope, purpose and direction for our nation today.

Fascinating. A timely reminder of why the Pilgrims’ story still matters so much for today.

About the Author

Philip Quenby

Philip Quenby

Writer and film-maker Philip Quenby, formerly a partner in an international law firm, has a passion for understanding what the past has to say to us today.

His book Redeeming a Nation offers biblical reflections on over a thousand years of English history, whilst the follow-up One Small Candle uses the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims to emphasise the importance of a biblical world view for the development of freedom, democracy and rule of law.

His five-part documentary Magna Carta Unlocked (see magnacartaunlocked.com) examines how and why modern civil liberties grew on the back of a failed peace treaty – and what part the Bible played in that process.
