Summary
"Drawing upon new sources and Washington's own words, the Novaks reveal that the first president was indeed deeply spiritual though also deeply private about his personal religious convictions and practices. This new presentation of Washington - as a man whose religion guided his governance - brings him into the center of today's debates about the role of faith in government and will challenge everything we thought we knew about the inner life of the father of our country."--Jacket
Summary
An examination of the religious views of George Washington argues that historians have mislabeled the first president as a deist, and offers evidence to suggest he was a deeply spiritual man
