Summary
It is no exaggeration to claim that the Bible has been, and by far, the single most widely read text, distributed object, and referenced or cited book in all of American history. For countless Americans, scripture has opened a doorway to the personal experience of God. The Bible has also functioned as a guide to life, sometimes with liberating or comic effects and sometimes with oppressive or tragic results. This book provides a survey of the relationship between the Bible and public issues from the beginning of European settlement through the American Revolution.
