Even from the very beginning, the Bible played a starring role in American history. When George Washington was sworn into office as our first president, he didn't place his hand on the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States, as valuable as those documents are. Instead, he swore upon and even kissed the Bible to sanctify the moment. Washington knew the Bible had brought American history to that moment.
Trying to explain American history without the role of the Bible is like trying to understand the human body without the role of the bloodstream. If there had been no Bible, there would be no America as we know it. The Bible made America.
While it's true that not every Founding Father was a Christian, a Bible-believer, or a paragon of virtue and not every leader has honored the Bible or appreciated its influence, there is an undeniable history of leaders who have been intimately acquainted with the contents of the Bible, who have studied its Scriptures and respected its teachings. Join Robert J. Morgan as he teaches about the Bible's role in the defining moments and impacts on the people of our nation's history, reminding us of the beauty at the intersection of faith and country, and reigniting our hearts' passions for both.
