The Faith of Washington

The new May 2006 edition of The American Enterprise has a fantastic article on George Washington entitled "Washington's Faith and the Birth of America" by Michael and Jana Novak.

In recent years there has been an unconscionable revision of American history. Virtually all traces of the deep and rich faith of most of the early settlers, especially in the northern and middle colonies, and of our Founding Fathers has been suppressed. In fact, many historians have labeled Washington a Deist. The Novaks, however, spent a year sifting through the evidence and have come to very different conclusions.

In this article based upon their research for their new book Washington's God: Religion, Liberty and the Father of our Country, the Novaks share a brief overview of his life with examples of his true faith interspersed. Three cheers for the Novaks. I can't wait to read their book.
