Featured Book Series: Fea’s *Was America Founded as a Christian Nation*

The Conference on Faith and History’s own John Fea (Messiah College) recently released a book on the founding of the United States.

The publishing description from Westminster John Knox Press: “Fea offers an even-handed primer on whether America was founded to be a Christian nation, as many evangelicals assert, or a secular state, as others contend. He approaches the title’s question from a historical perspective, helping readers see past the emotional rhetoric of today to the recorded facts of our past. Readers on both sides of the issues will appreciate that this book occupies a middle ground, noting the good points and the less-nuanced arguments of both sides and leading us always back to the primary sources that our shared American history comprises.”

If anyone is interested in writing a commentary on the book for this blog, please let me know at grjones83@gmail.com.
