Item description for The Founders on God and Government by Daniel Dreisbach, Jeffry Morrison & Mark Hall...

Overview
In God We Trust?" The separation of church and state is a widely contested topic in the American political arena. Whether for or against, debaters frequently base their arguments in the Constitution and the principles of the American founding. However, Americans' perception of the founding has narrowed greatly over the years, focusing on a handful of eminent statesmen. By exploring the work of nine founding fathers, including often overlooked figures like John Carroll and George Mason, The Founders on God and Government provides a more complete picture of America's origins. The contributors, all noted scholars, examine the lives of individual founders and investigate the relationship between their religious beliefs and political thought. Bringing together original documents and analytical essays, this book is an excellent addition to the library of literature on the founding, and sheds new light on religion's contributions to American civic culture.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Founders on God and Government?

A concise compilation gets the job done  May 20, 2005
This compilation of several essays, each taking a detailed look at a different member of the American founding, is a great resource for the student of American history. One of the great debates in the classroom today is the level of importance that the Founding Fathers wanted religion to play in the role of the new American government. With the aid of several leading scholars, the reader comes to the conclusion that the vast majority of the founders held Christian ideals in high regard, and thus it is only expected to conclude that Christianity was important to the founding, a point that has been debated to a great degree in recent years. I was fortunate enough to take a course taught by one of the editors of the volume, and the role of this text was invaluable to the learning experience in the course. For anyone who wants to understand how religion influenced nine important members of the American founding, "The Founders on God and Government" is for you.
