In our worship the people have always taken an active and significant part, and a zeal for corporate worship has featured every period of renewal within Protestantism.

As he rereads his old work he finds so much that, if he were to write it now for the first time, he would write very differently, but which, once written, he cannot change...." - Preface To The New Edition from Archbishop Laud 1573-1645

He has profited much down the years from calumny, as he did while he was alive; and if he could enjoy his fame today, he would be the most confident of its endurance because men still find it interesting to caluminate him...." - Introduction from Paradise Lost
