The God of Democracy, Religion in Revolutionary America details the interplay of religion, society, and politics from the beginning of 16th century to the adoption of the U.S.

Constitution (1787). The God of Democracy awakened in the wilderness forests of America. He proved a heroic deity endowed with extraordinary powers and destined to carry out glorious exploits as he strode forth among men and nations. Yet religion today is clearly under attack by secular, partisan, and anti-relgious forces, and this book will help those of deep patriot faith to rediscover their voice.On the surface, the causes of the Revolution have disappeared along with its lappets, bonnets, and periwigs- but the causes of dissatisfaction with government are deep-rooted and sprout new growth periodically.

The similarities between the situation in pre-revolutionary America and the United States today are striking for any honest observer. In almost every case a widespread and unremitting contempt for established authority coupled with a libertarian leave-me-alone attitude seems best to unify many of the cross-generational attitudes toward government passed down throughout these histories. This is a book for those who believe that clinging to their guns and their Bibles is part of being American.

It could serve as an afordable text for home schoolers and others looking for a history free of modern propaganda..In the Declaration of Independence, American revolutionaries relied on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God to justify and underwrite their separation from Britain. In 1776, most American political thinkers understood that religious beliefs as well as political structures were the products of social protocols and authoritarian pressures, and not the reverse. The founders of America placed freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, in the premier position in the Bill of Rights.

It was they who fundamentally transformed America.The author, James M. Volo, PhD is a noted historian and teacher. He is the author of dozens of books, essays, and articles on American history and culture. He is also the editor of several historical works and has served as an historical consultant for TV and films.
