Daniel Cawdrey (1588-1664) was a Calvinistic Presbyterian minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the Westminster Assembly. He preached sometimes to the members of parliament…was ejected from his living at Great Billing, and separated from his friends and his flock by the Act of Uniformity, after having labored, for the edification of his people in that place for 37 years. He was among the best puritan scholars of his day.
This new work, the final compilation of Cawdrey’s writings, was his most popular and well-received treatise on Family Reformation. He urged William Gouge, who wrote “Of Domestical Duties” which was almost exhaustive on the reformation of the family, to condense a smaller work that would be more manageable for the laity. Cawdrey took this task up himself with Gouge’s blessing. As a result, this work on Family Reformation became exceedingly popular. It covers the duties of husbands to wives, wives to husbands, children’s duties, as well as master and slaves. Cawdrey also includes a catechism to confirm the teachings of biblical truth in a reformed family.
Also included in this volume are the last of Cawdrey’s known works covering humility, the effects of a good man on the community in which he lives, as well as a short scholarly treatise on the role of the magistrate called “The Depths of Satan Discovered.”
