Overview

In his first book, Spirited Americans, A. E. Jeffcoat celebrated America’s optimists, the people who gave this country its character and greatness. He follows it with Soul Searching, an affirmation of Christian faith through the testimony of pilgrims who have born witness to its historical traditions.

Today, those who turn to God to help them deal with the challenges of a world without a moral compass will derive comfort from treading the same path as Einstein, Schweitzer, and Mother Teresa. Others who have lost their faith, or never found it, can look for encouragement in the lives of latecomers such as Tolstoy and Malcolm Muggeridge, discovering, as did Simone Weil, that any step toward God is a good step.

The legacy of Thomas Jefferson and the examples of such leaders as Hamilton, Lincoln, and the two Roosevelt’s will challenge those who question whether faith has a place in our secular polity. Learn the power of faith and the durability of Christianity in Soul Searching.
