Quick read. A great look at how this country is indeed founded on Judeo-Christian principles and how our Founders were deeply religious. Barton also explains how secularism has crept into our society. He illustrates an interesting (and scary) parallel of how once the Bible was taken out of the public form, immorality and crime skyrocketed. "Separation of Church and State" is a phrase not even included in our founding documents yet has been so perverted to fit the needs of a progressive agenda.

Also a movie, currently available as streaming on Netflix. Amazing!, has to be watched more than once just to soak it all in. (The first time watching is spent mostly getting over the shock of what you haven't heard) I would love to read the book since I would learn it better.
I could continue by composing patriotic comments now, but maybe my time would be better spent reading the Bible. :)
GARBAGE...unless you are a hard-core believer in the movement of the religious right. Don't get me wrong, I believe that Christian ideas were used to establish America. I just don't buy the supercharged crap that is in books like this.

This was a great introduction to the study of America's Godly heritage. However, I would have liked it to have more depth. The endnotes can be used for a more in-depth study, which is nice.
08-02-2009: Before the elections, I was in San Diego visiting The Rock Church. They had literature for sale and I grabbed this book. Looks and sounds very poignant and interesting.

Excellent reminder of where we came from. I'll have to give this book to some friends and family members.
