Book Review: Christianity and the Constitution, The Faith of Our Founding Fathers

Christianity and the Constitution: The Faith of Our Founding Fathers, by John Eidsmoe. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1987, 416pp. Reviewed by Rev. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Reedy River Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC.

One of the eminently important socio-political questions of our day has to do with the role of Christianity in the founding of our nation. It should go without saying to the readers of The Counsel of Chalcedon that America is adrift in the tumultuous sea of secular humanism. Such anchorless casting about on the waves of the sea of chance is sure to result in a shipwreck of monumental historical importance for America, -- unless faithful Christians can in a timely manner secure this ship of state with its original Christian moorings.
