Presbyterian minister John Witherspoon was a key figure, politically and religiously, in the formative years of the United States. Having come to New Jersey from Scotland to become president of the College of new Jersey (now Princeton University), Witherspoon was caught up in the political currents of the time and ended up as a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Through his preaching, writing, and leadership, Witherspoon made his influence felt well beyond the walls of Princeton.
In this fresh account of Witherspoon’s thought, Gordon Tait focuses on Witherspoon’s piety – the way Witherspoon believed that the Christian faith should take visible and practical form in ministry, politics, and everyday obedience and devotion. The Piety of John Witherspoon is filled with photographs from Witherspoon’s life, and Tait’s comprehensive treatment of the piety issue makes a significant contribution to the understanding of Witherspoon’s impact on church, education, and society.
