After ten years of research and four years of writing, Dr. Gary T. Amos reveals that the evidence from primary sources is irrefutable: underlying the Declaration of Independence is a foundation of Biblical principles and Christian influence. The Bible and Christianity--not deism and secularism--were the most important influences on the framers. Amos laments that America's educational system denies or ignores almost all this evidence--evidence he believes to be undeniable.

If ever a book needed to be written, this is it! For years, Americans have been taught that the Declaration of Independence was a deistic document and that there was nothing Christian about it. Gary Amos has skillfully exploded this myth and has brought to bear an enormous amount of historical documentation indicating the Christian and Biblical principles and ideas which underlie the Declaration. Every American should read this book.
In this scholarly yet easily readable book, Gary Amos exposes the error of the Supreme Court's establishment of secularism as our national religion. Professor Amos demonstrates that America's founding, as exemplified in the Declaration of Independence, was neither secular nor deist, but rooted in the Christian tradition of the common law. This book is an important and courageous challenge to prevailing misconceptions.
