The book also uses the most detailed materials to demonstrate the consistency between the Apostolic Church and Protestantism. On this basis, I deeply discuss the origin of Protestantism and how Luther generated epoch-making equality for all under God through his soul-stirring exploration. It made Christianity return to the accessibility, freedom, and equality of the apostolic era, opened a new chapter of human society. Calvin deduced many Christian Rights on the gound of Luther. He deduced these rights through the most essential Ten Commandments in the Bible, such as the inviolability of private rights, people having the right to protect themselves with guns, etc. These are the origin of Western civilization and the cornerstone of the so-called capitalism. It is also the root of the so-called concept of human rights. On these bases, I naturally led everyone to the British revolution.
Next, you can see the most wonderful part of the book, the British revolution, and the American Revolution. I searched many old English historical dates and got many precious historical materials, which completely subverted the views and ideas of ordinary historical books on these two revolutions. In this book, I adhere to the view of most British historians that the British civil war was a revolution carried out by Puritans to realize their ideals, so the British civil war can be called the Puritan war. The first chapter, the background of the civil war, emphasizes that the conflict between Anglian and Puritanism is the leading cause of the civil war because it involves the ultimate eternal world. Both sides all give eye teeth, don’t give in a little, which leads to the outbreak of the civil war. The second chapter, Britain before the civil war, describes England under the regime of James I and Charles I and emphasizes that Charles’ tendency to dictatorship is the direct external cause of the outbreak of the civil war. The third chapter is the battle of bishops. Charles, I forced the implementation of the Anglican and episcopal system in Scotland, which aroused the dissatisfaction of Scots who believed in the Presbyterian Church, and broke out the war of resistance, that is, the battle of bishops, which was the beginning of Britain’s all-round civil war. The fourth chapter, the first civil war, introduced in detail the internal causes of the outbreak of the British revolution, The majority of Anglicans were extremely dissatisfied with Charles I’s forcible promotion of the high church (Amini sect) of William Laud, the Archbishop of Canterbury at that time. At the same time, Charles I also had a fierce quarrel and conflict with the Parliament on constitutional government. The Puritans took advantage of this confusion to put forward radical proposals for abolishing the Catholic system. It resulted in the great division in Britain and the complete outbreak of civil war. This chapter also introduces the process of the civil war in detail, especially Cromwell and his new model army.
