This is the most comprehensive selection ever published of the writings of our third president and foremost spokesman for democracy. Jefferson, a brilliant political thinker, is perhaps best known for the Declaration of Independence, but he was a man of extraordinarily wide interests. Here along with his public papers are pieces on science, archaelogy, architecture, gardening, and literature; travel journals; first-hand accounts of the French Revolution; fascinating descriptions of life in early America, including the complete Notes on the State of Virginia; and more than 250 brilliant and urbane letters to such men as Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Lafayette, Madison, and John Adams. For a renewed sense of the possibility that the United States represented to its founders, this is a remarkable and indispensible book.

Highlighting the ethical teachings of Christ and eliminating the supernatural aspects of the Gospels, Jeffers on's "edits" of Scripture reflect the deist view of religion, which developed during the 18th century. Presenting Jesus as a moral guide rather than as divine, this brief narrative focuses on his life of compassion and service.
