    This is the best book I have ever encountered concerning the religious beliefs/faiths of the most important Founding Fathers. Dr. Gsustad is a full professor of history at the University of California, and he does a wonderful job explaining how the enlightenment influenced the elites of the founding generation. Bravo!
