Adams, Thomas - 1583-1652

Thomas Adams (1583-1652)    

A Calvinist lived name of Adams
            • He preached against all of the bad'uns.
            • With puns and with quips
            • That fell from his lips
            • He fed both the sheep and the lambs.
see wiki: Thomas Adams (1583–1653 [1]) was an English clergyman and reputed preacher. He was called "The Shakespeare of the Puritans" by Robert Southey; while he was a Calvinist in theology, he is not, however, accurately described as a Puritan. [2] He was for a time at Willington, Bedfordshire, and his works may later have been read by John Bunyan[3]
