So help me God : the founding fathers and the first great battle over church and state by F. Forrester Church( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's dispute over the line between church and state (or the lack thereof) is neither the first nor the fiercest in our history. In this retelling of the birth of the American body politic, religious historian Forrest Church describes our first great culture war-a tumultuous yet nearly forgotten conflict that raged from George Washington's presidency to James Monroe's. On one side of the battle, the proponents of order--Federalists, Congregationalists, New Englanders--believed that the only legitimate ruler of men is God. On the other side, the defenders of liberty--republicans, Baptists, Virginians--cheered the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, and believed that only the separation of church and state would preserve man's freedom. Would we be a nation under God, or with liberty for all? In this vigorous history, Church offers a new vision of our earliest presidents' beliefs, reshaping assumptions about the debates that still reverberate across our land.--From publisher description

A chosen faith : an introduction to Unitarian Universalism by John A Buehrens( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Affirming diversity, dialogue, and personal choice in religious living, providing common ground and community for people from a wide variety of backgrounds and beliefs, and encouraging the work for social justice that religion inspires, Unitarian Universalism has become an increasingly appealing religious alternative. This is a clear, helpful introduction to this growing religious movement. Two long-time ministers and denominational leaders describe the sources and history of Unitarian Universalism, how those traditions are adapted in congregations today, and how they each came to choose Unitarian Universalism as a career and a way of life.--From publisher description

The separation of church and state : writings on a fundamental freedom by America's founders by F. Forrester Church( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Certain basic issues will always be debated in our country, even without a presidential election at stake. One of the most important of these is the separation of church and state. On this issue, Americans constantly interpret and reinterpret the intentions of America"s founders. Now, they will have a collection of the most eloquent writings of the founders to help them understand the original reasoning behind this separation. Forrest Church, well-known writer and religious leader, son of former senator Frank Church, has used his considerable knowledge about this subject to bring together these writings for modern readers. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Adams, George Washington, Patrick Henry--these are just some of the leaders who wrote movingly about the need to separate religion and government. This concise primer will get past the rhetoric that surrounds the current debate and deliver instead specific writings by the original authors of the Constitution."--Publisher description

Restoring faith : America's religious leaders answer terror with hope( Recording )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Restoring Faith is a monumental literary work, not only for its spiritual substance, but also for its historical significance. It is historically significant because these recordings offer a glimpse, from across the spectrum of Western Religious' traditions, of how various religious leaders reacted to the events of September 11th. Although delivered by men and women of different faiths, all the discourses in Restoring Faith have two underlaying themes - an unwavering faith in God and the sure and certain knowledge that this tragedy can be overcome. In essence, a strong faith in God can help overcome any evil, and there is strength in prayer." Reviewed by Rochelle Caviness, Large Print Reviews - December 25, 2001
