Roger Williams truly embodied the new-world idea of radical freethinkers. In the Massachusetts colony, and later Rhode Island, Williams advocated for religious liberty and a separation of the church and state. Today, these are ideas that seem obvious and commonplace, but in Williams’ time they were radical and dangerous.
Edwin S. Gaustad is the definitive source for information about American religious history and this book is no exception. This powerful biography traces Williams’ journey, his ideas, and how his legacy has shaped American thought for generations.
