Show Notes

The conversations and debates that preceded the American Revolution were frequent and spirited. The colonial clergy were active participants in it. But according to Dr. Gary Steward, they have been misunderstood. Were these ministers co-opted by secular thinking? Or did they remain faithful to their theological heritage in advocating for political resistance?
