Anne Bradstreet - Pilgrim And PoetAuthor: Cook, Faith
Publisher: Evangelical Press(through Ten Of Those)
Details: This biography is ideal for young women seeking godly mentors. She was only 18 yrs old when she left English shores as one of the contingent of puritan refugees, in search of liberty to worship without fear of persecution from state or church. She struggled with ill health but despite this and the harsh conditions faced by the early settlers she was able to be a devoted wife and mother whilst becoming America's first published poet, balancing her life skills in a God honouring manner. She had a humble dependence on God and desired to live constantly in the light of a better world to come, 'whose builder and maker is God'. This book can challenge the frequently materialistic earthbound culture of our society.
