A distinguished professor debunks the assertion that America's Founders were deists who desired the strict separation of church and state and instead shows that their political ideas were profoundly influenced by their Christian convictions.
In 2011, David Mark Hall published an essay with the Heritage Foundation entitled "Did America Have a Christian Founding?" That essay question caused a sensation - with Hall's lecture on the subject covered by C-SPAN and his essay itself being downloaded more than 300,000 times.
In this new audiobook, Hall expands upon this essay, making the airtight case that America's Founders were not deists; that they did not create a "godless" Constitution; that even Jefferson and Madison did not want a high wall separating church and state; that most Founders believed the government should encourage Christianity; and that they embraced a robust understanding of religious liberty for biblical and theological reasons. In addition, Hall explains why and how the Founders' views are absolutely relevant today.
This compelling and utterly persuasive audiobook will equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation's founding - and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).

Yes, it had a Christian founding. The book is relatively short since his thesis isn't hard to demonstrate.
