Founding Faith: Providence, Politics and the Birth of Religious Freedom in America

This fast-paced narrative begins with the earlier settlers' stunningly unsuccessful efforts to create a Christian paradise, and concludes with the presidencies of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison, during which the men who had devised lofty principles regarding the proper relationship between church and state struggled to practice what they'd preached. The author sets the record straight regarding the real history of religious freedom in America.
