Any book that stretches horizons can be worth reading. Hart's book stretches us in a very much needed direction.
One negative review of this book states that Hart rambles, but I found his narrative and matter-of-fact style to be interesting and engaging. Another negative review states that Hart makes untrue claims about Jefferson's Christianity--this is not the case at all. Hart claims Jefferson's faith "waivered somewhere between deism and New Testament faith" and uses Jefferson's own words and numerous, well-documented actions to show him as at least a friend to Christianity and not the anti-religious axe that freed the state from the church proclaimed in modern circles.
The only chapter that is more opinion than historical analysis/logical assertion is the last chapter in which Hart expresses his opinion of what this means for today, but the rest of the book is a valuable and educational text, even if there are many typos (it appears the text was scanned and "read" by a computer which induced the errors).Read more ›
