    In searching for more substantive answers to the mood, thoughts, and motivations of Christians in America prior to and during the War of Independence, I came across Mark Noll's book on Christians in the American Revolution. Having read several of Professor Noll's books before, he is a trusted source for accurate information and analysis of Christain history, and this book does not disappoint. Much has been spoken, mainly in "sound bite" form, of the Christian beginnings of America, and many evangelicals have twisted history to put a more Christian face on matters than the facts dictate. Mark Noll continues to find the balance of remaining a firm believer and researching/delivering the facts without embellishment. While not in league with his later works, this beginning proves an excellent resource. He breaks down Christians into four basic groups, then asks four simple questions, getting at the issues of how the war and American Christianity both interacted and affected one another. A master of history and particularly the interface of Christianity and secular history, Mark Noll's analysis, while occasionally dry in the book, is none-the-less well grounded, well researched and footnoted (as are all his later works), and provides a good resource for those looking at where we have been and how we got to where we are today.
