A Brief Word of Thanks to the Churches

I have been to a lot of churches since I began touring to promote Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? A Historical Introduction. It has been a lot of fun.  I am convinced that local congregations need to be having the kinds of conversations that my book and other books raise about the relationship between Christianity and the American Republic, both in the eighteenth century and today.

But today I want to say thanks to the churches I have not visited who have been using my book in Sunday School classes and adult forums.  I also want to thank the pastors and church leaders who have recommended it to their congregations.  Here are a few:

Hillcrest Baptist Church of Mobile, Alabama

The United Church of San Juans, Ridgeway, Colorado

Alexandria Presbyterian Church, Alexandria, Virginia

Saint Mark's Lutheran Church, Charlotte, North Carolina

First Presbyterian Church, Deland, Florida

First Presbyterian Church, Lawrenceville, NJ

First Baptist Church, Hazard, Kentucky

First Presbyterian Church, Nashville, Tennessee

Fellowship Bible Church, Hillsborough, New Jersey

I am sure I missed some.  If your church is not on the list please let me know and I will add your church to the list.
