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.


Joe Barnhart is Professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies at the University of North Texas. Linda Kraeger teaches British and World Literature at Gainsville High School. Joe Barnhart and Linda Kraeger are also the authors of Dostoevsky on Evil and Atonement (1992) and In Search of First–Century Christianity (2001). Endorsements 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! —Edwin Gaustad Professor Emeritus University of California-Riverside
