How did Christianity shape the founding of America and its heritage? Is there a link between Christianity and freedom?

Coauthors Dean Coddington and Richard L. Chapman explore these questions in God Bless America: Patriotic Fervor or Historic Reality? Coddington and Chapman take a sweeping look at world events, in Europe and elsewhere, that influenced the exploration and settlement of North America as well as the major religious revivals that affected American culture and the desire for self-government.

God Bless America summarizes each of the first six presidencies and includes chapters on the drafting and ratification of the Constitution. Concise summaries of the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and the War of 1812 are also included. Coddington and Chapman even compare the intellectual contributions of Enlightenment philosophers versus the influence of Christianity. God Bless America makes the argument that America has an unmistakable Christian heritage and that religion and a desire for independence worked together to establish and sustain the new country. Throughout America's history, there is powerful evidence of God's blessings along every step of the way!
