The question of church and state is an issue which truly perplexes our national life today. Battles are continually waged over this issue-in the schools, in the courts, and on the campaign trails. Many people, including Christians, are confused on what the relationship between church and state should be. Many have fallen prey to the propaganda that, by its antiestablishment clause, the Constitution has meant there should be no relationship between God or Christianity and the government. No assertion could be further from the historical facts.
Dr. Eidsmoe shows clearly how most of our founding fathers were not secular men, as we often hear today. He explains how the influence of Calvinism gave rise to our republican form of government. He also documents how our founding fathers embodied several biblical principles in the Constitution.
"I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about our nation's truly Christian heritage, which has been virtually expunged by the secular revisionists. I pray God will use it to educate a new generation of informed, Christian Americans."

"Legally accurate yet easy to understand.... presents the truth about our founding fathers and their strong Christian roots that is missing from most textbooks and reference books written during the last fifty years. Every student of American history, ministers, and public speakers should read this book...."
Tim LaHaye, Family Life Seminars
"Knowledge of our Christian heritage is an important weapon in the current fight for religious freedom in America. Eidsmoe has given us an entire arsenal of new and important evidence substantiating the Christian roots of our government."
