AMERICAN GOSPEL God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation

by | Read by Grover Gardner

Philosophy & Religion • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

The title is a bit misleading because this book goes up to the late twentieth century, but the author’s thesis is well taken: The United States was founded by religious men whose enlightened views created a nation that accepts all faiths equally under the law. Grover Gardner is an excellent choice to narrate this work. He has a deep, resonant voice and reads in a compelling tone. Best of all, he lets the author’s words speak for themselves and navigates a narrow channel in waters fraught with explosive possibilities. What we get from Meacham and Gardner are solid facts and interpretations without polemics or bows to political expediency. The Framers would be proud.
