Stannard argues that the Puritan attitude toward death was characterized by a tension rooted in their understanding of grace.
One of Stannard's most intriguing observations is his effort to demonstrate that a heightened awareness of death and increased devotion to funeral rites and rituals are closely related to social strain and instability.
Stannard concludes his analysis with an eloquent reminder that while we cannot and should not return to the awful (aweful?) agonies of the Puritans, they nevertheless faced death with realism and the resources of a community, two elements of life conspicuously absent from twentieth century America.
