British Calvinists: Thomas Adams (1612-1653)

Little is known about Thomas Adams (1612-1653) what we do can has to be gleaned form his won writings. He was a Calvinist who remained with in the Established Church. He was described by Robert Southey as 'the prose Shakespeare of Puritan theologians . . . scarcely inferior to Fuller in wit or to Taylor in fancy.' 

Adams was a minister at Willington, Wingrave, and London, and “observant chaplain” to Sir Henry Montague, the lord chief justice.
