America’s founding fathers were deeply religious people. This informed many aspects of the political structuring system – from the Constitution to overall legal culture. So, what can this tell us about America’s early history and potential future? Daniel L. Dreisbach sits down to explain…

Daniel is an author, academic, and attorney who works as a professor at the American University School of Public Affairs. Teaching in the Department of Justice, Law, and Criminology, Daniel is immensely knowledgeable in the history of law and politics in the American founding era. 

As the author of Reading the Bible with the Founding Fathers, Daniel made it his goal to educate readers on the founders’ diverse use of scripture – ranging from the literary to the theological. In this book, he outlines how they utilized scripture to authorize civil resistance, invoke divine blessings for righteous nations, and more.

In this conversation, we cover:

  • The role religion played in the culture of early America. 
  • How the laws in America can reflect biblical ideas. 
  • What the main tenets of Protestantism are, and how this ties into American history.
