In The Faiths of Our Fathers, widely acclaimed historian Alf Mapp, Jr. cuts through the historical uncertainty to accurately portray the religious beliefs of eleven of America's founding fathers, including John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. He discovers men with religious beliefs as diverse as their political opinions. These profiles shed light on the lives and times of the revolutionary generation and the role of religion in public life throughout American history.
