American Gospel: God, The Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation by Jon Meacham
Read the following reviews written by two of today’s eminent authors, and note that this book was chosen as a text for one of the Lay School’s courses offered this fall at Luther Seminary.
"In his American Gospel, Jon Meacham provides a refreshingly clear, balanced, and wise historical portrait of religion and American politics at exactly the moment when such fairness and understanding are much needed. Anyone who doubts the relevance of history to our own time has only to read this exceptional book.” - David McCullough, author of 1776
“Jon Meacham has given us an insightful and eloquent account of the spiritual foundation of the early days of the American republic. It is especially instructive reading at a time when the nation is at once engaged and deeply divided."
