"With the publication of this impressive ten-volume set of Mather's Biblia Americana, a much truer picture is possible of a major Puritan leader who (for all his admitted quirks and faults) was a polymath in his learning, an omnivore in his reading, and a discerning critic in his biblical study. The set offers an illuminating portrait of Mather that is also an open window to his times."
