1)To this day Americans argue about whether our founding fathers were “Christian” and founded America as a “Christian nation.”
How is Paine’s profession of religion similar to or different from that of the Puritans? What does he see as America’s central purpose? How does this compare to the reasons Bradford and the other Puritans read gave for coming to America?
2) The lecture notes summarize Richard Foster’s Renovare group’s six “streams” or traditions of the Christian faith. Select one of the six traditions/emphases and discuss whether or not you see it emphasized in Edwards’s “Personal Narrative.” (In other words, does his view of Christianity emphasize one or more of the streams more than others?)
