Well written & pertinent!

Forrest Church has thoroughly researched our history and connected our founding father's thoughts & hearts to a much more liberal doctrine of spirit in our Constitution and Declaration of Independence than most conservatives will be ready to believe.
His hypothesis that we were founded on liberal values that have been under attack from the beginning makes perfect sense, and is very important to today's world, with all the fundamentalism and evangelic fervor pushing us further & further to the right.
Sadly, most will automatically dismiss this book by the title alone, afraid of what they will find. If they'd take the time they'd see good reasons why God must be a liberal, and why we must return as a nation to more liberal thinking and behavior if we are to remain a nation that values it's people.
I highly recommend this book!
