3.0 out of 5 stars If you need to get a clue..., April 29, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation (Hardcover)
I reccomend this book. I liked this book. It was an enjoyable read with many interesting quotes. Meacham's general opinion is middle of the political road and that is probably right where the country should be on the "God" issue. He blasts the religous zealot who shoots at the abortion clinic doctor while also leaving it clear that the zealot atheist could learn a thing or two from religion in general with out having to fall on their knees to pray. Reading this won't convert you into one frame of thought or another but it does shed some light on what was going on in the founders heads.
The point is also made that the founders may have been a little more religious in public than they were in private. A good point and believable knowing many who are alive today who profess a belief in an all knowing all powerful being then become pretty normal people all the rest of the time. Moderation!
