Building a New Jerusalem

This chapter examines how John Davenport's Profession repays examination both for what it suggests regarding the type of statement expected of those who wished to join the church and as a statement of the beliefs Davenport considered essential at this time in his life. Davenport, like John Cotton, never addressed himself in print to the stages of conversion. His inattention to issues of the saint's preparation was similar to John Preston's preaching on calling. Davenport did encourage the sharing of personal experience among those seeking to identify the pillars of the new church. Personal narratives also tended to highlight the role of preachers as a means that God used to open the sinner to grace.
