Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Alan Dershowitz proves that the religious right is misusing the Declaration of Independence in their drive to Christianize America

From school prayer to federal funding of faith-based programs, the religious right's drive to Christianize America and abolish the separation of church and state has sparked heated debate around the nation, in private homes and parish halls as well as in Congress and the Supreme Court. In this challenging and provocative polemic, acclaimed civil libertarian and legal educator Alan Dershowitz defends the Declaration of Independence against the religious right's attempt to hijack it for their Christianizing cause.

It is more than ironic that the Declaration, which was written by Thomas Jefferson, a fervent proponent of the separation of church and state, should be invoked in favor of a Christian America. Dershowitz decisively counters arguments that the Declaration of Independence was founded on biblical law, proving conclusively that there is absolutely no relation between the "Creator" and "Nature's God" referenced in the Declaration and the Judeo-Christian God of the Old and New Testaments. Providing expert arguments and the documentation to disprove this grave distortion of one of our most important national documents, he is as commanding┬ľand compelling┬ľas ever on the front lines in the defense of American history and individual liberties.

Alan Dershowitz (Cambridge, MA), the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, is one of the country's foremost appellate lawyers and a distinguished defender of individual liberties. He appearsfrequently on television and has contributed articles to the New York Times and other newspapers and magazines. His many books include the New York Times bestsellers The Case for Israel and Chutzpah as well as The Case for Peace and America Declares Independence.

    Regardless of your religious beliefs, faith, or no faith, the government is for all with equal rights. Our founding fathers knew that Religion and Rules of Law did not work as one. (King/Head of Church) This book tells how these men look at developing a government that let those that wish to speak can and those that don't still will be allowed their silence. And, though some can be loud and use God to explain their actions, us that wish to keep Him inside are not treated with less. No organizated religion is more powerful than another in our government. No one faith is right and the others wrong. Anymore than those that do not believe in a superior God. The government was for all the people and equal to all. Church or no church, faith or no faith. That's what made it GREAT!
