Item description for Faith of the Founders: Religion and the New Nation, 1776-1826 by Edwin S. Gaustad...

This book traces the religious life of the nation from the time of the Revolution to the deaths of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. In his portraits of Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Washington, and Adams, Gaustad carefully considers the developing relationship between church and state in America. Gaustad also follows the trial of diverse religious ideas and communities, as well as chronicles the religious dimensions of daily life for ordinary Americans.

Publishers Description
In the lauded Faith of the Founders, revered historianEdwin Gaustad provides a careful consideration of the developing relationship between religion and the state after the American Revolution. With concise focus on Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and John Adams, Gaustad identifies seven varying--sometimes contrary--perspectives on religion that guided the nation's founders. Faith of the Founders masterfully shows how these figures possessed an intuitive understanding of religion that helped nourish a young country. Repackaged for a new generation of readers and with a new foreword by Randall Balmer, this brief but insightful book offers a look into the founding fathers' genius--and points to a way forward through the ideological boundaries that threaten to upend the daily doings of American government today.
