Professor Fea’s historical introduction offers an even-handed primer on whether America was founded to be a Christian nation, as many evangelicals assert, or a secular state, as others contend. He approaches the title’s question from a historical perspective, helping readers see beyond the emotional rhetoric of today to the recorded facts of our shared American past.
