By J. Schlembach on August 19, 2015

While discussing the beliefs of the founding fathers with some of my neighbors in the forum section for the local paper, Mr. Fortenberry popped up at a mention of "theistic rationalism." My guess is that he has a google alerts for this (not that there's anything wrong with that; I have a few set up myself). However, as a historian-in-training, I had run across his comments on a few blogs here and there.

We spent a little bit of time talking and he, in a truly Christian fashion, gifted me a copy of this.

It was not what I expected.

For one, it was significantly more theologically minded than I had anticipated. While I am not a Christian, and this sort of thing is, in most other instances, a turn-off for me, the aplomb in his writing and obvious delight in research and argument kept me reading. I have now read it twice. Having read it twice, I am of two minds on the matter.

First, I think he makes his case well. His command of source material, both well known and more obscure (how wonderful it is to find new volumes to read!) contributes to his case. On that end, I think he is correct about the broad-to-useless utility of the phrase "theistic rationalism." I cannot argue with him, and frankly, I think it would useless to try.

Second, though, I think while this work is admirable, and while Mr. Fortenberry IS correct, I think that the scope of the phrase as used by Frazer is clear enough. While the term might be too all-encompassing (which,again, his case to my eyes is airtight), the beliefs of some of the founders cannot be summed up easily. To this end, I think Frazer does a decent job and coins a "useful enough" phrase. On the subject, I asked Mr.

Fortenberry doesn't give Gregg Frazer much space. He takes quotes out of context then takes them apart in straw-man fashion. This hurts his credibility. I watched Frazer do a much more convincing job in a hurried presentation after reading this booklet.

This booklet,"The Founders and the Myth of Theistic Rationalism" does a great job of debunking some of the myths about the faith of our founding fathers propagated by so called experts. It is well written, informative and a quick read. I highly recommend this work to anyone interested in our founding fathers and the founding era.
