“We have become a nation that has a tale of two histories” writes Brad Cummings, Editor of The Founder’s Bible.  “One that has a deep, rich spiritual heritage that speaks of a godly purpose and destiny that was born in the heart of this nation as it was founded; and another that is progressively seeking to distance itself from that, trying to pretend it does not exist.”

Peter A. Lillback, author of George Washington’s Sacred Fire writes, “Establishing… the critical role that Christians and Christian principles played in the founding of our nation… encourages a careful reappraisal of our history and founding documents…”  Lillback cautions, “A nation that forgets its past does not know where it is or where it is headed.”   

 “… we should always remember [the] strong and striking proofs of the interposition of Heaven…” -John Jay

“… I have long been convinced that our Enemies have made it an Object, to eradicate from the Minds of the People in general a Sense of true Religion & Virtue, in hopes thereby the more easily to carry their Point of enslaving them.”  -Samuel Adams

“History may distort truth, and will distort it for a time… Nor will the opening scenes of our present government be seen in their true aspect until the letters of the day… be broken up and laid open to public view. What a treasure will be found…” –Thomas Jefferson

“Whereupon, Resolved, That the United States in Congress… to the interest of religion as well as an instance of the progress of arts [knowledge] in this country… recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States…”  -Continental Congress, 1782
