At a time when our country seems divided by extremism, American Gospel draws on the past to offer a new perspective. Meacham re-creates the fascinating history of a nation grappling with religion and politics from the Revolution to the Civil War; from a propsed ninteenth-century Christian Amendment to the Constitution to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s campaign for civil rights: from George Washington to Ronald Reagan. American Gospel makes it compellingly clear that the nation's best chance of summoning what Lincoln called "the better angels of our nature" lies in recovering the spirit and sense of the Founding Fathers. In looking back, we may find the light to lead us forward.
