Details

Though every president of the United States has thought of himself as a Christian, some have denied some the central doctrines of orthodox Christianity. This book carefully examines each President’s religious beliefs and compares those beliefs to the doctrines of biblical Christianity. The book also discusses their conversion experiences (where applicable), examines how their religious beliefs affected their Presidency, examines their beliefs on God’s role in American history, and looks into pertinent historical controversies.

It contains both new and long-forgotten facts about and statements by many of our Presidents. Recently discovered (or rediscovered) information leads to new or modified conclusions about the religious beliefs of Jackson, William Henry Harrison, Buchanan, and Nixon.

The book uses original sources, such as letters and firsthand recollections, to offer one of the most comprehensive portrayals of the topic ever written. The seven previous books on the topic relied on anecdotes and widely available speeches and biographies to paint interesting but anecdotal histories. This book offers the definitive treatment of its topic, yet remains fascinating and readable. One chapter is devoted to the religious beliefs of each President; the average chapter is ten to twelve pages long.

About the Author
Daniel Mount began researching this topic during his years as a homeschooled student and continued research while earning my Bachelor’s degree in American History and Political Science. He has had published several articles and one previous book, City on a Hilltop: The Story of Contemporary Christian Music (self-published in 2005). Daniel lives in Mansfield, Ohio and is active in a non-denominational church, as well as in political circles.
