THE FAITH OF AMERICA'S PRESIDENTS
" THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED, SUPERBLY WRITTEN, THIS WILL CHALLENGE AND SURPRISE MANY VETERAN HISTORIANS."
- Dough Wead
(Author of New York Times bestsellers The Raising of a President and All The President's Children)
Though every president of the United Stated has thought of himself as a Christian, some have denied various doctrines of orthodox Christianity. Daniel Mount carefully examines each president's religious beliefs and compares those beliefs to the doctrines of biblical Christianity. He discusses their conversion experiences (when applicable), examines how their religious beliefs affected their presidencies, scrutinized their beliefs pertaining to God's role in American history, and looks into important historical controversies.
The Faith of America's Presidents contains both new and long-forgotten facts about, and statements made by many of our American Presidents. Recently discovered (or rediscovered) information leads to new or modified conclusions about the religious beliefs of Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, James Buchanan, and Richard Nixon.
The author uses original sources-letters and firsthand recollections-to offer one of the most comprehensive portrayals of the topic ever written.
DANIEL J. MOUNT began researching the faith of Americans Presidents during his years as a homeschooled student and then continued his research while earning his Bachelor's degree in American History and Political Science. While promoting the Faith of America's Presidents, he has appeared appeared on numerous national and local radio shows, including Janet Parshalls "America," Moody Broadcasting Networks "Prime Time America," Chuck Crismiers "Viewpoint," Bob and Geri Boyds "Issues in Education," and Phyllis Schlaflys "Eagle Forum Live." His articles have appeared in magazines as diverse as Singing News and Home School Digest. He lives in Avery's Creek, North Carolina.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a homeschool graduate and did my Bachelor's degree (incidentally, a split major with history and political science) via distance learning.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to read a book on the topic, but I found out that the only in-depth treatment was written during LBJ's presidency (if I recall right). One thing led to another, and soon I was at work on a book of my own.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that those who read this book gain a better appreciation of the role of Christianity in our Presidents' private and public lives.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Since I read widely, probably over 100 books per year, many authors have influenced my style. But probably the two authors who most inspire me, and have influenced me the most, are Henry Morris and Peter Marshall.
