Prodigal nation : moral decline and divine punishment from New England to 9/11 by Andrew R Murphy( )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America's supposed moral decline from an imagined golden age, and the threat of divine punishment for straying from the path of righteousness, have been consistent themes in its political and religious rhetoric. But why is this myth so compelling to Americans? Murphy investigates the jeremiad's historical roots and probes the ways in which it continues to illuminate larger themes and tensions in American social and political life. He examines its role in colonial New England, shows how it was employed during the Civil War, and demonstrates its continued power in today's political climate. Far from being simply a force for conservatism - the yearning for a return to "a simpler time"--The jeremiad has often been employed in favor of progressive causes. Americans of all political stripes - not just Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, but Abraham Lincoln and Robert Kennedy - have used the language of moral decline for political purposes."--Jacket

Conscience and community : revisiting toleration and religious dissent in early modern England and America by Andrew R Murphy( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conscience and Community revisits the historical emergence of religious liberty in the Anglo-American tradition, looking deeper than the traditional account of the emergence of toleration to find not a series of self-evident or logically connected expansions but instead a far more complex evolution. Murphy argues that contemporary liberal theorists have misunderstood and misconstrued the actual historical development of toleration in theory and practice." "Murphy approaches the concept through three "myths" about religious toleration: that it was opposed only by ignorant, narrow-minded persecutors; that it was achieved by skeptical Enlightenment rationalists; and that tolerationist arguments generalize easily from religion to issues such as gender, race ethnicity, and sexuality, providing a basis for identity politics. The book seeks a renewed appreciation of the specificity that made religious toleration so divisive as well as the general tension between conscience and community that persists in contemporary societies."--Jacket

Liberty, conscience, and toleration : the political thought of William Penn by Andrew R Murphy( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Penn played a crucial role in the emergence of religious liberty and remains a singular, if often overlooked, figure in the history of liberty of conscience. Penn's political thought provides a window into the tolerationist movement that gained strength over the second half of the seventeenth century. In addition, Penn experienced firsthand the complex relationship between political theory and practice as proprietor of a major American colony. A careful examination of Penn's political thought points scholars toward a new way of understanding the enterprise of political theory itself"--
Political religion and religious politics : navigating identities in the United States by David S Gutterman( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profound demographic and cultural changes in American society over the last half century have unsettled conventional understandings of the relationship between religious and political identity. The "Protestant mainline" continues to shrink in numbers, as well as in cultural and political influence. The growing population of American Muslims seek both acceptance and a firmer footing within the nation’s cultural and political imagination. Debates over contraception, same-sex relationships, and "prosperity" preaching continue to roil the waters of American cultural politics. Perhaps most remarkably, the fastest-rising religious demographic in most public opinion surveys is "none," giving rise to a new demographic that Gutterman and Murphy name "Religious Independents." Even the evangelical movement, which powerfully re-entered American politics during the 1970s and 1980s and retains a strong foothold in the Republican Party, has undergone generational turnover and no longer represents a monolithic political bloc

William Penn : a life by Andrew R Murphy( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On March 4, 1681, King Charles II granted William Penn a charter for a new American colony. Pennsylvania was to be, in its founder's words, a bold "Holy Experiment" in religious freedom and toleration, a haven for those fleeing persecution in an increasingly intolerant England and across Europe. An activist, political theorist, and the proprietor of his own colony, Penn would become a household name in the New World, despite spending just four years on American soil. Though Penn is an iconic figure in both American and British history, controversy swirled around him during his lifetime. In his early twenties, Penn became a Quaker-an act of religious as well as political rebellion that put an end to his father's dream that young William would one day join the English elite. Yet Penn went on to a prominent public career as a Quaker spokesman, political agitator, and royal courtier. At the height of his influence, Penn was one of the best-known Dissenters in England and walked the halls of power as a close ally of King James II. At his lowest point, he found himself jailed on suspicion of treason, and later served time in debtor's prison. Despite his importance, William Penn has remained an elusive character-many people know his name, but few know much more than that. Andrew R. Murphy offers the first major biography of Penn in more than forty years, and the first to make full use of Penn's private papers. The result is a complex portrait of a man whose legacy we are still grappling with today. At a time when religious freedom is hotly debated in the United States and around the world, William Penn's Holy Experiment serves as both a beacon and a challenge."--
