eBookTrust and Treachery eBook • $5.00
It was a time of great adventure, when London merchants looked westward for profits and Puritans looked westward for freedom. None tested the boundaries of civil and religious obedience more than Roger Williams. Minister, statesman, explorer, and champion of religious liberty, Roger Williams was the consummate man for these daring times. In Trust and Treachery, authors Linda Kraeger and Joe Barnhart take readers inside the life and times of Roger Williams with a literary sense of immediacy a typical biography could never capture.
With a lively yet historically informed imagination, and with a notable literary flair, the authors have presented a compelling drama of Roger Williams's life and labors—to the year 1638. We eagerly await the sequel!
