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. The Columbia Series in Reformed Theology represents a joint commitment by Columbia Theological Seminary and Westminster John Knox Press to provide theological resources from the Reformed tradition for the church today. This series examines theological and ethical issues that confront church and society in our own particular time and place.

James Calvin Davis

James Calvin Davis is Associate Professor of Religion at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. He is the editor of On Religious Liberty: Selections from the Works of Roger Williams.

""In this clear, well-written, and compelling book, Davis accomplishes a remarkable feat: He brings to life Roger Williams's moral theology in its Reformed context and, at the same time, shows that it provides a powerful and distinctive model for rethinking the contemporary relation between Christian conviction and public ethics. I enthusiastically recommend this book both for its insights into Williams's thought and for its suggestions for contemporary Christian moral discourse."
