New Leaf Publishing Faith of Our Founding Fathers - Paperback

Copyright 1990, this book tackles the big "moral majority" issues of the time, such as the change from "Christmas/Easter vacations" to "Winter/Spring break", the removal of the 10 commandments from courthouses, and the use of classrooms for Christian activities after school. The majority of this book's content, however, is dedicated to explaining how and why our founding fathers were Christians, the Christian moorings of America's most important documents...and why the secularization of American society is related to the "separation of church and state" argument. With rejoinders to "pray also that we will elect God-fearing presidents in 1988, 1992, and 1996", the political aspects may seem outdated in places. High school - adult. 268 pages, softcover.

For Christians, this is an excellent book on how the faith of the founders influenced the developement of the US form of Government. However, skeptics will find that many of its statements are not adequately sourced. For those, a more scholarly book would be Eidsmoe's Christianity and the Constitution The Faith of ourFounding Fathers
