High atop the Rhode Island capitol in Providence, a bronze likeness of ""The Independent Man"" keeps watch over a state that historically has put the ideal of individual liberty before all others. Like many ideals, this one was freighted with many meanings. As the colony grew in the seventeenth century, the belief in religious liberty and freedom of conscience espoused by its founder, Roger Williams, led to the development of political liberty and practical democracy

Modern revivalism : Charles Grandison Finney to Billy Graham by William G McLoughlin( Book )

13 editions published between 1958 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is concerned with religious revivalism in the United States since 1825. It attempts to explain the part which revivalism has played, and is playing today, in the social, intellectual, and religious life of America. The aim has been, in describing the development of modern revivalism and the men who devoted their lives to it, to look below the surface phenomenon in an effort to discover why revivals have constantly recurred, what their effects have been, and what they meant not only to those directly concerned but to all Americans. If the revivals of the past century and a quarter have not always been the crucial factors in the course of American history that their devout exponents claimed, they have nevertheless been more significant that the social historians have yet acknowledged." - from the Preface

Cherokees and missionaries, 1789-1839 by William G McLoughlin( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1995 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1789 Washington's administration announced that American Indians would receive equal citizenship as soon as they were "civilized and Christianized." William McLoughlin describes the crucial role missionaries played in the acculturation and "Americanization" of the Cherokee Indians from 1789 to 1839. He compares the methods, successes, and failures of the Moravians, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, Baptists, and Methodists among the Cherokees. Each denomination offered its own vision of "civilization": Southern missionaries taught the divine ordination of slavery, but northern missionaries taught that God opposed it. Some counseled the Cherokees to "obey the powers that be"; others showed them how civil disobedience might defeat Andrew Jackson's plan to remove the Indians to the West

Champions of the Cherokees : Evan and John B. Jones by William G McLoughlin( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Champions of the Cherokees is the story of two extraordinary Northern Baptist missionaries, father and son, who lived with the Cherokee Indians from 1821 to 1876. Told largely in the words of these outspoken and compassionate men, this is also a narrative of the Cherokees' sufferings at the hands of the United States government and white frontier dwellers. In addition, it is an analysis of the complexity of interracial relations in the United States, for the Cherokees adopted the white man's custom of black chattel slavery. This fascinating biography reveals the unusual extent to which Evan and John B. Jones challenged prevailing federal Indian policies: unlike most other missionaries, they supported the Indians' right to retain their own identity and national autonomy. William McLoughlin vividly describes the "trail of tears" over which the Cherokees and Evan Jones traveled eight hundred miles through the dead of winter--from Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and North Carolina to a new home in Oklahoma. He examines the difficulties that Jones encountered when, alone among all the missionaries, he expelled Cherokee slaveholders from his mission churches. This book depicts the Joneses' experiences during the Civil War, including their chaplaincy of two Cherokee regiments who fought with the Northern side. Finally, McLoughlin tells how these "champions of the Cherokees" were adopted into the Cherokee nation and helped them fight detribalization.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

The Cherokees and Christianity, 1794-1870 : essays on acculturation and cultural persistence by William G McLoughlin( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and German and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In part two, McLoughlin examines the crucial problem of racism that divided the southern part of North America into red, white, and black long before 1776 and he considers the ways in which the Cherokees either adapted Christianity to their own needs or rejected it as inimical to their identity. As in white society, it proved impossible for the Cherokees to separate religion from politics between 1830 and 1860. A short epilogue that contains the Fast Day Proclamation of 1870 by Chief Lewis Downing, the fullblood chief of the Cherokees, is also included

The diary of Isaac Backus by Isaac Backus( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American historians have long realized that the Baptist minister Isaac Backus (1724-1806) played a signal role in the separation of church and state in New England, but his diary, here published for the first time, makes clear as well his importance as a leader and spokesman of the small dissenting sect that would become after 1800 the largest Protestant denomination in the nation. The diary, covering the sixty-year span from the First to the Second Great Awakening, describes the campaigns he and his colleagues waged for religious liberty and for the propagation of their religious principles." (p. xv) Isaac was a direct descendant in the fifth generation of English immigrant William Backus Sr., who settled in Saybrook, Connecticut in 1637. Issac died before New England abandoned religious taxation (Connecticut in 1818, Massachusetts in 1833), but before his death he was certain New England would eventually switch to Thomas Jefferson's position of separation of church and state
Billy Graham, revivalist in a secular age by William G McLoughlin( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an attempt to place Billy Graham's revivals in their historical perspective.The revival tradition in America is almost three centuries old. Yet, except for occasional references to Jonathan Edwards, Aimee Semple McPherson, or Billy Sunday, few accounts of Graham have tried to relate him to this tradition. In order to see how and where Billy Graham fits into this religious panoply it is necessary to consider his career in a much broader context than has hitherto been attempted. This book, therefore, deals with his place in the venerable revival tradition, his role in the contemporary great awakening as compared to the role of revival leaders in past awakenings, his relationship to the institutional development of the churches, past, present, and future, and his place in the shifting climate of theological and ecclesiastical thought over the last fifty years. Above all, this book tries to relate the man, his message, and his career to the changing pattern of American social and intellectual life. For it is obvious to everyone by now that Billy Graham is far more than a professional revivalist. He is a representative figure of his age. This book attempts to discover, from the viewpoint of the social historian, precisely what Billy Graham and his revivals represent, and what they signify about the temper of American civilization in the middle of the twentieth century. - Preface
