America and the Word: A Conversation with Mark Noll

with Mark Noll

As the author of numerous influential histories of religion in America, Mark Noll is considered to be the master historian of this subject. In this edition of Liberty Law Talk, Mark Noll joins us to discuss his latest book, In the Beginning Was the Word. Noll describes how the Bible shaped the foundation of public life in early America. He traces this influence directly in the Puritan biblical commonwealths in New England, to the narrow and intense Protestantism unleashed by the First Great Awakening, and the ways both Loyalists and independence-minded colonists used scripture during the Revolutionary War.
