By Julius H. Rubin

Tears of Repentance revisits and reexamines the favourite tales of intercultural encounters among Protestant missionaries and local peoples in southern New England from the 17th to the early 19th centuries. targeting Protestant missionaries’ money owed in their beliefs, reasons, and pursuits one of the local groups they served and of the faith as lived, skilled, and practiced between Christianized Indians, Julius H. Rubin deals a brand new means of realizing the factors and motivations of these who lived in New England’s early Christianized Indian village communities.

Rubin explores how Christian Indians recast Protestant theology into an Indianized quest for salvation from their worldly issues and towards the promise of an otherworldly paradise. the good Awakening of the eighteenth century unearths how evangelical pietism remodeled non secular identities and groups and gave upward push to the elegant wish that New Born Indians have been childrens of God who may possibly successfully contest colonialism. With this dream unfulfilled, the exodus from New England to Brothertown predicted a separatist Christian Indian commonwealth at the borderlands of the United States after the Revolution.

Tears of Repentance is a vital contribution to American colonial and local American background, delivering new methods of interpreting how local teams and participants recast Protestant theology to revive their local groups and cultures.
