In The Founders on God and Government, Daniel L. Dreisbach, Mark David Hall, and Jeffry H. Morrison bring together noted scholars to explore the role religion played in the political thoughts and deeds of nine founding fathers. The result is a seminal work that deepens our understanding of the relationship between faith and politics at America's founding.
