A story uncovered in research for his dissertation has led one Gardner-Webb University faculty member to be published by the prestigious Oxford University Press. Dr. Joseph Moore, assistant professor of history, wrote the book, “Founding Sins: How a Group of Antislavery Radicals Fought to Put Christ into the Constitution,” from research that took him to the United Kingdom. It chronicles the attempts of The Covenanters to convert America to a Christian nation and traces their political roots from Scotland to the New World.
