America's Christian History: The Untold Story (Paperback)
By Gary DeMar
Christianity is written on every page of America's amazing history. Gary DeMar presents well-documented facts which will change your perspective about what it means to be a Christian in America; the truth about America's Christian past as it relates to Supreme Court justices and presidents; the Christian character of colonial charters, state constitutions and the U.S. Constitution; the Christian foundation of colleges; the Christian character of Washington, D.C.; the origin of Thanksgiving; and so much more. Three appendixes have been added that further emphasize Christianity's positive influence on America. Additional information includes "Deism and the Founding of America" and also "Jesus Christ and the Founding of America." This is an indispensable book which is needed in a time when even "under God" is coming under fire.
“Gary DeMar shows in this book from historical documents that from the very first arrival of explorers to the new world to the establishment of this country as a nation, the driving force behind that was the expansion of Christianity and not just the exploration of foreign lands. He goes through all of the founding documents of the first settlers, the colonies, the states and even that of the country's itself showing that all them are either explicitly Christian or generous towards the Christian faith. He also discusses several court cases dealing with this very topic, the significance of the Biblical language found on government buildings our currency etc., as well a in depth review of the ever popular Treaty of Tripoli. No one can read this book and not agree that Mr. DeMar has made a solid case for America's Christian History.” – David Carraway
“Understanding more of what I missed or was not taught was a great feeling to recapture at my advanced age ... no one's class plan to redirect and hide critical driven events and ideals was a mind expanding read.” – Bob Mullins
“While some of DeMar's books are controversial (and rather polemical) even among fellow Christians, this is one of his broader books, and should find a wider and more receptive audience.” – Steven H. Propp, Sacramento, Calif.
“The plain truth is that like it or not, America was built out of a Judeo-Christian world view and upon a Biblical foundation; there is simply no way around that and no amount of 'kicking and screaming' will re-write history. All fair-minded individuals are encouraged to read Gary DeMars book, 'Americas Christian History' in order to intelligently weigh the data.” – “Book Junkie,” N.J.
