Gregg Frazer Responds to David Barton

World Magazine, a conservative Christian magazine, is the latest evangelical organization to raise questions about David Barton's understanding of the American past. 

You may remember that last summer Thomas Kidd  broke this story about Barton in the pages of World and last month the magazine published a forum on The Jefferson Lies featuring Barton and his harshest critics, Warren Throckmorton and Michael Coulter.

Now Gregg Frazer, author of The Religious Beliefs of the Founding Fathers: Reason, Revolution, Revolution, has turned to the pages of World to criticize Barton's work.  Barton offers a short response in which he tells World readers to check out the revised version of The Jefferson Lies, soon to appear with Glen Beck's Simon & Schuster imprint, Mercury Ink.
