“The Word was his world”

Adam Nicolson, in his book, God’s Secretaries: The Making of the King James Bible, describes Puritans this way:

“A puritan ate and drank the word of God. That word was his world.” (123)

Nicolson does not intend this as a compliment, and there were errors of various sorts associated with various ones known as”Puritan.” However, I would be honored to be known as one who ate and drank the Word of God, one whose world was indeed that Word.

Oh, to be worthy of such criticism.
