Excellent read. Well written, engaging.

I picked up this book as an impulse buy Noble from the ¿Books for Grads¿ table as I was checking out of Barnes & Noble last month. The fact that Mapp has done the research from original writings for each of the founders he discusses, and bases his conclusions on this information made the book a worthwhile read for me. I have read a least one biography on most of the founders he discusses; several on some of them. It is my opinion that his conclusions are right on target. And, it is an easy read, also a plus.

All of our Founding Fathers were Christians, and they built this country on Christian principals. Everybody knows this... but everybody knows George Washington chopped down the Cherry Tree as well, don't they?It will give you something to think about.
