God's Irishmen describes the theological debates that tore the Cromwellian movement apart and provided for its eventual failure. Providing a close and informed analysis of the relatively few texts that survive from the period, Crawford Gribben not only dissects the contentious theological issues but reflects on larger questions about the characteristics of the Protestant churches in Cromwellian Ireland.
