Product Description

Those seeking strict separation of church and state often claim the Founding Fathers were deists, not holding to any particular faith. Hall challenges this pronouncement, defending the premise that Christianity lies at the heart of the Constitution; religious liberty was embraced for biblical and theological reasons; and even Jefferson and Madison did not promote a secular nation. 240 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

A distinguished professor debunks the assertion that America's Founders were deists who desired the strict separation of church and state and instead shows that their political ideas were profoundly influenced by their Christian convictions.

In 2010, David Mark Hall gave a lecture at the Heritage Foundation entitled "Did America Have a Christian Founding?" His balanced and thoughtful approach to this controversial question caused a sensation. C-SPAN televised his talk, and an essay based on it has been downloaded more than 300,000 times.

In this book, Hall expands upon this essay, making the airtight case that America's Founders were not deists. He explains why and how the Founders' views are absolutely relevant today, showing

  • that they did not create a "godless" Constitution;
  • that even Jefferson and Madison did not want a high wall separating church and state;
  • that most Founders believed the government should encourage Christianity; and
  • that they embraced a robust understanding of religious liberty for biblical and theological reasons.

This compelling and utterly persuasive book will convince skeptics and equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation's founding--and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).
