This book should stand as a great starter for those who are looking to learn more about the faith of the men who founded America. There's a lot of good information here, but there's not enough for a serious student or for someone who's facing serious criticism of Christianity. The author does take some things slightly out of context and does not always tell the entire story which is not really untruthful in this context, but would not be sufficient for debating purposes.
It is very interesting book and quite a departure from the "Left Behind" series. You come to realize that the same politics leanings that we have today were the same back then. We founded on Christian principles, but that did not come easy.
