The founders on religion : a book of quotations by James H Hutson( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What did the founders of America think about religion? Until now, there has been no reliable and impartial compendium of the founders' own remarks on religious matters that clearly answers the question. This book fills that gap. A collection of quotations on everything from the relationship between church and state to the status of women, it is the most comprehensive and trustworthy resource available on this timely topic." "The book calls to the witness stand all the usual suspects - George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams - as well as many lesser known but highly influential luminaries, among them Continental Congress president Elias Boudinot, Declaration of Independence signer Charles Carroll, and John Dickinson, "the Pennsylvania Farmer." It also gives voice to two founding "mothers," Abigail Adams and Martha Washington." "The founders quoted here ranged from the piously evangelical to the steadfastly unorthodox. Some were such avid students of theology that they were treated as equals by the leading ministers of their day. Others vacillated in their conviction. James Madison's religious beliefs appeared to weaken as he grew older. Thomas Jefferson, on the other hand, seemed to warm to religion late in life. This compilation lays out the founders' positions on more than seventy topics, including the afterlife, the death of loved ones, divorce, the raising of children, the reliability of biblical texts, and the nature of Islam and Judaism." "Partisans of various stripes have long invoked quotations from the founding fathers to lend credence to their own views on religion and politics. This book, by contrast, is the first of its genre to be grounded in the careful examination of original documents by a professional historian. Conveniently arranged alphabetically by topic, it provides multiple viewpoints and accurate quotations."--Jacket
John Adams and the diplomacy of the American Revolution by James H Hutson( Book )

13 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The figure of John Adams looms large in American foreign relations of the Revolutionary and post-Revolutionary years. James H. Hutson captures this elusive personality of this remarkable figure, highlighting the triumphs and the despairs that Adams experienced as he sought -- at times, he felt, single-handedly -- to establish the new Republic on a solid footing among the nations of the world. Benjamin Franklin, thirty years Adams's senior and already a world-respected figure, was his personal nemesis, seeming always to dog his steps in his diplomatic missions. The diplomacy of the American Revo

Church and state in America : the first two centuries by James H Hutson( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes American ideas about and policies toward the relationship between government and religion from the founding of Virginia in 1607 to the presidency of Andrew Jackson, 1829-1837. Four principles were paramount during this period: the importance of religion to the public welfare; the resulting obligation of government to support religion; liberty of conscience and voluntarism; the requirement that churches be supported by free will gifts, not taxation. The relevance of the concept of the separation of church and state during this period is examined in detail
Forgotten features of the founding : the recovery of religious themes in the early American Republic by James H Hutson( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains six original essays that explore the deep significance of previously neglected religious themes in the Founding Era. The author argues that without understanding these themes, it is impossible to comprehend the religious mentality of the Founding Era. Among the themes elucidated and explored are the doctrine of the future state of rewards and punishments, the civil magistrate's idealized role as the nursing father, and the conception of rights as moral powers grounded in religion. These essays challenge existing scholarship on the Founding Era, which often downplays the importance of Christian ideals in the formation of the American government
