From Plymouth Rock to Independence Hall and beyond, the dates of American history overflow with evidence of the profound role Christianity has played in our nation. The historical record fully documents the claim that America was founded by Christians to be a biblical "city on a hill." Sadly, however, that record is rarely consulted... As a result, the once self-evident assertion that America was founded as a Christian nation is mocked by academic and media elites. Author Gary DeMar answers secular denials of America's Christian heritage as he presents evidence from a broad range of historical sources and lets the record speak for itself. Consider, for example, the following: In 1892, the Supreme Court of the United States declared, "This is a Christian nation." French social philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville concluded in 1831 that "[T]here is no country in the world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence over the souls of men than America." Woodrow Wilson said in 1911 that "America was born a Christian nation." The New England Confederation said the purpose of the colonies was "to advance the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the liberties of the Gospel in purity with peace." Book jacket.
