Item description for Gospel of Liberty [VHS] by Vision Video...
The revivals of the Great Awakening shook Britain's North American colonies from spiritual slumber during the 1730s to 1750s. In Virginia it touched men and women whose spiritual needs had been too long neglected by the legally established Anglican church. In homes, in meetinghouses, and in open fields, rich and poor, black and white, men and women mingled to hear powerful messages of a personal God and salvation. The Great Awakening rattled and cracked the foundations of hierarchical authority and official religion from Georgia to New England. The program re-creates the fire of George Whitefield, the zeal of Samuel Davies, and their pursuit of the right to worship according to one's convictions. With Colonial Williamsburg as a backdrop, Thomas Jefferson guides viewers to understand how the axiom that government ought not legislate belief became a fundamental pillar of American democracy. 37 minutes.

Gospel of Liberty Jul 14, 2001
Colonial Williamsburg is the backdrop for this movie. The video depicts the role the Great Awakening played in developing the American Constitution. The right to worship according to one's convictions is emphasized in the story. With Thomas Jefferson as the guide throughout the movie, it makes this time in history come to life. Was used in a classroom and students learned alot about the Constitution and reasons for the American Revolution.
