Now that we're back on track, how about a discussion about one of the most interesting Presidents this country has ever had?

Join us for a fun evening as we discuss Sworn on the Altar of God: A Religious Biography of Thomas Jefferson by Edwin S Gaustad ( Since the space is limited it is very important that you immediately update your RSVP status if you cannot attend. If there are people on the waiting list they will be automatically bumped up to the "Attending" category when others change their RSVP to "Not Attending".

The discussion begins at 7pm in the Davanni's "Party Room", but many of us arrive at 6:30 to have a little dinner. The evening usually concludes around 9pm after everyone has an opportunity to share their book recommendations and other ideas for group events.


This acclaimed biography explores the religious life of Thomas Jefferson and the contribution his strident commitment to religious liberty made to the formation of the nation. Renowned historian Edwin Gaustad chronicles Jefferson's intellectual growth, paying particular attention both to Jefferson's private struggle to come to grips with his own faith and to his public role as champion of religious liberty. This volume is must reading for anyone interested in the religious life of one of America's most significant figures.
