Religion and Political Culture in Jefferson's Virginia examines the influential statesmen and the political struggles in revolutionary Virginia that played a decisive role in developing a distinctive American approach to religious liberty and church-state relations. This collection of innovative essays by leading scholars profiles the Christian communities in Virginia, analyzes the religious philosophical influences of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, and discusses the Virginian contributions to the American experiment in religious liberty. Religion and Political Culture in Jefferson's Virginia presents a fresh perspective on religion's role in Virginian and American political culture and provides a critical reassessment of the existing scholarship in the field.

About the Author:

Daniel L. Dreisbach is associate professor of justice, law, and society at American University. Garrett Ward Sheldon is John Morton Beaty Professor of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Virginia's College at Wise.

Review:

Religion and Political Culture in Jefferson's Virginia, a collection of trenchant essays written by eminent scholars of religion in American public life, brings fresh perspectives and innovative research to the study of religion's role in Virginian and American politics. (National Liberty Journal)

A lively attack on the 'strict-separationist' construction of the Establishment Clause and an attempt to explain why the founders thought that state encouragement of religion supports good government. (Phillip Munoz Claremont Review of Books)

This is an exceptionally important and readable book. Students of religion and politics owe a deep debt of gratitude to Dreisbach and Sheldon for putting together a systematic correction of myths and misunderstandings about religion and politics in America. (Charles W. Dunn, author of The Scarlet Thread of Scandal: Morality and the American Presidency)
