At the October meeting of the SHL Book Group, we will be discussing Founding Faith: How Our Founding Fathers Forged a Radical New Approach to Religious Liberty
by Steven Waldman
Various American evangelicals have claimed the founding fathers as believing and practicing Protestants who intended America to be a Christian nation. Secularists, on the other hand, see in the same historical record evidence that the founders were often Deists at best. Both views are grossly oversimplified, argues Waldman, cofounder and editor-in-chief of Beliefnet.com. In this engaging, well-researched study, Waldman focuses on the five founding fathers who had the most influence on religion's role in the state?Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, Adams and Madison?and untangles their complex legacy.
The Book Group meets on the fourth Sunday of the month, September through May, at the West Ashley Atlanta Bread Company, located at 1850 Sam Rittenberg Blvd.
