Roger Williams, New England troublemaker and founder of Rhode Island, is seldom included among the great figures in American Reformed theology. Yet Williams's arguments for religious liberty were deeply rooted in Puritan Calvinism. This book explores the "moral theology" that informed Williams's spirited defense of toleration, demonstrating how Reformed theology in Williams's hands allowed him to defend the integrity of religious convictions while also making the case for conversation and cooperation with moral citizens outside his circle of faith.ContentsPt. I Theology 1 Williams and the reformed tradition 2 Incarnational theology and religious freedom Pt. II Anthropology 3 Pluralism and natural morality 4 Conscience Pt. III Ethics 5 Civility 6 Christian integrity, public discourse, and the legacy of Roger Williams
