Piety & Elegance

“Piety was not at war with elegance.” These words of William Wilberforce well express a growing conviction. Far too many evangelicals in our day would have been more at home with the Quakers of a bygone era with their austerity and, dare I say it, drabness, than with the Puritans (like John Owen with his red leather boots and yellow cloak!) or their eighteenth-century Evangelical heirs.
