Full Product Description
Along the way, they helped American secularists create their own identity as liberals, and demonstrated to Protestant fundamentalists the acceptable outer limits of moral reform. As the nation's earliest and most avowed abolitionists, they also had a significant influence on the fight for emancipation. In Founding Sins, Joseph Moore examines this forgotten history, and explores how Covenanters profoundly shaped American's understandings of the separation of church and state. He shows that while modern arguments about America's Christian founding often make their case from the right, the Covenanter legacy flies in the face of that claim. They fought for an explicitly Christian America in the midst of what they saw as a secular state that failed the test of Christian nationhood. Though their attempts to insert God into the Constitution ultimately failed, Covenanters set the acceptable limits for religion in politics for generations to come.
