He begins with his birth, education at Oxford, and interest in theology. He arrives in New England to the newly established Pilgrim church.

Traveling New England, he finds his opinions on church and state offensive to the people. Williams struggles with authorities over religious rites and practices. He eventually settles Providence. The reviewer relates details of the colony and treatment of the Native Americans. Massachusetts rejects the new settlement. After Williams involves in politicking, a colony is formed. The reviewer respects the biographer’s inclusion of depictions of religious intolerance in New England. The reviewer continues with details of politics concerning the colony’s status and Williams’ scantly detailed death. The reviewer praises the work for its detail and accuracy.
