Bill Cole's Puritans, Plagues, and Promises, Part 1
Author and passionate genealogist William "Bill" Cole was in the Chapter House studio to talk about his latest book, Puritans, Plagues, and Promises. It'd be a fascinating enough-- and historically consequential-- story if it was about someone else's ancestors. But that the tale involves his own family and an important piece of Christian history makes Bill's story all the more remarkable. In this first of what we hope will be several conversations, we talk about King Henry VIII, the Church of England, the dreaded "Star Chamber," and religious freedom. Join us!
