Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? The answer to that question is frequently debated by politicians, historians, and evangelicals. John Fea visits with us to offer his thoroughly-researched response. His new book, Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? A Historical Introduction, is an even-handed primer that approaches the title's question from a historical perspective. Fea unpacks what has been said over time about America being a Christian nation, helping readers see past the emotional rhetoric of today to the recorded facts of our past.
