Another Review of "Was America Founded as a Christian Nation"

Richard Bailey of Canisius College has written a generous review of Was America Founded as a Christian Nation: A Historical Introduction at Renewing Minds: A Journal of Christian Thought.  Here is a taste:

In the end, Fea’s Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? is a wonderful study not only of a particular question in American history, but also of the hard work that goes into historical scholarship. Not everyone, of course, will choose to do the hard work of the historian herself, but that does not excuse one from doing equally diligent work when reading and critiquing history. “We owe it to ourselves,” Fea concludes, “to be informed citizens who can speak intelligently and thoughtfully about our nation’s past” (246). Resources like Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? offer everyone the tools necessary to be such an active and thoughtful reader and citizen.
