Bringing to life the complex creeds and personalities of America's Founding Fathers, this book confronts many of the myths about the religious views of some of the most notable figures in history. Offering clear and candid portraits of Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Paine, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison as both religious reformers and political rebels, this analysis tells the illuminating story of these unorthodox men of faith and thought and reclaims their spiritual inheritance for all Americans. Providing a careful examination of how the Founders' nature-based spirituality was tied to their fascination with science, this record includes discussions on Washington's aversion to using the word "God" in public pronouncements, Jefferson's mathematical calculations to show that the biblical great flood would have been impossible, and Paine's thoughts on the possibilities of alien life.

One of the absolutely BEST books on this subject.

Should be required reading by EVERY right-wing Tea Party type, self-proclaimed right-wing "patriot" and fundamentalist Christian!!!

I can not recommended it highly enough!

(Especially to "Christian Patriot" groups such as the statewide and local branch "Liberty Coalition" organization and their members, including those of the State's Republican Party Central Committee!)
