The Religious Freedom Education Project and Wesley Theological Seminary invite you to a provocative and timely presentation by award-winning author John M. Barry on his new work
Roger Williams and the Creation of the American Soul:
Church, State, and the Birth of Liberty

Knight Conference Center at the Newseum
555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.
John M. Barry’s latest book, Roger Williams and the Creation of the American Soul: Church, State, and the Birth of Liberty, is a revelatory look at the shaping of religious liberty, political power and individual rights in America. The convictions of Roger Williams, the 17th century pioneer in religious freedom, hold a powerful message for Americans debating the meaning of church-state separation and liberty of conscience in the 21st century.
Join us after the presentation for a reception with the author.
