Early settlers thought the land given to them by God; Native Americans being a nuisance. It was in New England that they hoped to build a Godly perfected society. Two visions of this conflicted – that of Winthrop and that of Williams. Despite the general preference for Williams as a proponent of tolerance; the book argues for the superiority of Winthrop’s vision.
