- What made the New World different from the Old?
- What ideas dominated the minds of the men we call the Founding Fathers?
- What were the real origins of the American faith?
If in the confusion of today, the lessons learned in building America have meaning or importance, then it is worthwhile to go back to the beginnings, to seek the roots.
In THE FAITH THAT BUILT AMERICA, the author has pursued this goal directly and effectively. He presents, in all their pristine clarity and power, the convictions, dedication and purpose that form the American faith. His commentary illumines the main lines of thought and the revolutionary concepts that made the New World so different from the Old.
Many men come to life for us in this book. Not only the giants of our past, but many lesser known who played colorful and significant roles in building the nation. These were the men who formed the bone and sinews of our American faith. They fought for and lived the convictions which must be the moral and spiritual backbone of sound democracy.
