When someone says that America is or isn’t a Christian nation, does that statement make it so? Americans wondered the same thing in 1892. In the aftermath of the Civil War, the country may not have felt or looked like a Christian one. At that crucial time, however, Justice David Brewer put into writing a synopsis of a Christian country that you will want to learn and remember. Tim Barton revives this definition and shows how the practicality of a Judeo-Christian worldview was acknowledged by those who formed and led the American government, among them including Baron de Montesquieu, Governor William Bradford, Reverend William Penn, and various statesmen, such as Presidents John Quincy Adams, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Richard Nixon and more.
