Very Insightful and Informative...a MUST READ
on March 16, 2009
As a younger reader I definitely found this book a refreshing breath of fresh air as I have only really experienced in my lifetime the "state" at which the separation of church/state debate is today along with the shouting matches that have ensued. It was truly enlightening to read of the faith of many of our most prominent presidents and to see how they envisioned freedom of religion and balanced their personal faiths with the running of our country. I never knew so many of presidents had such a strong faith and to hear the prayers, speeches, and addresses given by so many of them was enlightening to me. I wondered why I never learned of these things in public school. What a difference of opinion our founding fathers had on this topic...definitely worth reading.
Recommend to ppl who:
- want to know a constitutionally acceptable, faith affirming position on church/state issues.
- want to learn new things you probably never knew of our American presidents and our history.
- enjoy reading informative book on a hard issue...i learned a lot.
