For those wondering why the words of the Bible and prayers to God the Father of Jesus Christ are all over the public history and historical documents of our nation, this is a good resource. The founding fathers believed in separation of state and church which is very different from separation of state and religion.

This book began as a letter from Dr. Lillback to another minister regarding Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists. And it reads as such. It's a very direct explanation of Jefferson's intention with the letter, which is much different than is espoused today. Read this book regardless of your view of faith and government.
