ChristianBook eBooks on the Sony Reader
To read a Christianbook.com licensed eBook on your Sony device, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions.
Without using ADE, the Sony Reader will attempt to open eBooks with its own software, the Reader Library, and you may receive an error message.
To bypass the Sony Reader Library, return to the eBook portion of 'My Account' on our site, and click to download the eBook again.
When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'
If you are downloading a DRM Protected eBook, you will be prompted to open or save the URLLINK.acsm. Click 'Save'.
Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.
Plug in your Sony Reader, which will now display its model number and not just as Sony Reader.
Now just click, drag and drop your eBook onto the Sony Reader icon.
You can now eject your Sony Reader, open up the Books library and your eBook is ready to read.

"Should be the last word for all who would claim America as a Christian nation. . . . Deserves to be widely read." Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School, coauthor of Resident Aliens (with Will Willimon) and The Peaceable Kingdom.

"This is a timely book that will help make sense of one of the most important divides in American politics. John Fea offers a clear and balanced reinterpretation of how this debate has shaped American culture and society for more than 200 years." John Wigger, University of Missouri, author of American Saint and Taking Heaven by Storm
"Fea challenges his readers to think like historians, and presents them with the facts they need to weigh the evidence for themselves. Those who are ready to move past simplistic answers will be well served by this thought-provoking work." Mary V. Thompson, author of In the Hands of a Good Providence: Religion in the Life of George Washington
Thomas Antis5 Stars Out Of 5Balanced view by a real historianJune 4, 2012Thomas AntisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a hot topic these days, and after reading the book, it's evident it's been a hot topic all along. Through our church and other channels I've been encouraged to embrace some rather one-sided perspectives on the Christian heritage of America, but as a history aficionado, I've always felt an immediate discomfort over some of what I read. So this book, by an actual historian, has been a pleasure.
Don't misunderstand, I want to believe that a Christian worldview and doctrine had a very big impact on the founding of America, but as a Christian, I have a strong commitment to knowing the truth. It's not acceptable for me that some Christian authors would twist American history into a more "Christianized" version than evidence and solid historical research permits.
Accessible and well written, this book is a clear, even handed account of the influence of Christianity on America's foundation and evolution. I liked it and would recommend it over some of the other works that try to cast our early leaders as all born-again Christians.
