Today s dispute over the line between church and state (or the lack thereof) is neither the first nor the fiercest in our history. In a revelatory look at our nation s birth, Forrest Church re-creates our first great culture war a tumultuous, nearly forgotten conflict that raged from George Washington s presidency to James Monroe s. Religion was the most divisive issue in the nation s early presidential elections.Battles raged over numerous issues while the bible and the Declaration of Independence competed for Americanaffections.The religous political wars reached a vicious peak during the War of 1812; the American victory drove New England's Christian right to withdraw from electoral politics, thereby shaping our modern sense of church-state separation. No longer entangled, both church and state flourished.Forrest Church has written a rich, page-turning history, a new vision of our earliest presidents beliefs that stands as a reminder and a warning for America today.
