Read Å Roger Williams Lives and Legacies 107 Issenters of all stripes The book discusses Williams' journey back to London where he sought legal recognition of his colony spread his enlightened views on Native Americans and alongside John Milton fought passionately for religious freedom Gaustad also describes how the royal charter of Rhode Island obtained by Williams in 1663 would become the blueprint of religious freedom for many other colonies and a foundation stone for the First Amendment Here then is a vibrant portrait of a great American who is truly worthy of remembran. Roger Williams was pretty much America s original lefty loony fringe Biographers don t know many facts about his life but a good bit of his published work and correspondence have survived and that s what this slender biography builds on The main focus is on his struggle to establish a civil government with true freedom of religion or even to get people to understand that this was something worth having and would not lead to a complete breakdown of public order There s a nice chapter at the end which discusses how separation of church and state has developed over the years in the USI enjoyed reading this book but because of its length I felt like it only skimmed the surface of Roger Williams and his beliefs That s the main reason I m only giving it 3 stars
