I study Baptists in America and Britain during the seventeenth through the nineteenth century. Particularly, I am interested in how their theological ideas, including positions they took on ecclesiology and eschatology, informed their political and ethical views and actions. I am interested in how these intersected with big events such as the Revolutionary War or small, local ones such as the North Carolina Regulator’s Rebellion.
