Product Description

In Believers, Thinkers and Founders: How We Came to be One Nation Under God, Kevin Seamus Hasson provides a resolution to the age-old dispute surrounding the relationship of religion and state.

He proposes a solution straight from the founding: the government acknowledges the existence of God who is the source of our rights philosophically but not religiously. This idea of the "Philosophers' God" is a conception of God based on reason not on faith. Recognizing the distinction between the creator of the Declaration of Independence and the God of our faith traditions, we may be able to move past the culture wars over religion that have plagued the country.

In this book, Hasson examines the idea of the "Philosophers' God" while looking at a host of issues - including the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer at public events, and prayer in public schools - as he demonstrates how we can still be one nation under God.

Editorial Reviews

"This book should make one proud of America’s historic achievement in creating a society where different faiths not only co-exist, but flourish, in relative harmony.  Seamus Hasson traces the historical, philosophical and political evolution of that hard-won achievement with lively examples, and with all the brilliance that has made him a peerless defender of religious freedom.  With freedom of religion currently under assault at home and abroad,  his book should awaken persons of all faiths and no faith to the need for renewed vigor in the protection of this fundamental human right." --Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University   

"President Washington said it; President Lincoln reinforced it: Governments have a duty to affirm the existence of God. Why? Seamus Hasson in his new book gives the best reason I have ever encountered: Because in so doing governments limit their own power, and put themselves under undeceivable judgment." --Michael Novak, author of Writing from Left to Right
