Unmatched in the breadth of its scope, this study takes into account all of the surviving covenants in all of the New England colonies. Weir's comprehensive survey of seventeenth-century covenants leads to a more complex picture of early New England than what emerges from looking at only a few famous civil covenants like the Mayflower Compact. His work shows covenant theology being transformed into a covenantal vision for society but also reveals the stress and strains on church-state relationships that eventually led to more secularized colonial governments in eighteenth-century New England. He concludes that New England colonial society was much more "English" and much less "American" than has often been thought, and that the New England colonies substantially mirrored religious and social change in Old England.

"David Weir has given us the most detailed study of the civil and church covenants of colonial New England that we have ever had. Moving far beneath the reflections of the theologians, he shows us how the concept of covenant functioned among ordinary settlers attempting to live together in isolated and hazardous colonies. This is a thorough, judicious, and deeply informative book." E Brooks Holifield
