A supplemental history textbook that helps students dispel the common misconception that our founding principles came primarily from Greek, Roman, and Enlightenment thinkers. The authors trace the roots of such key precepts as the dignity of the individual, inalienable rights, government by consent, the separation of church and state and secular reform. Beginning with the Reformation’s role in advancing political and religious freedom, this colorfully formatted text chronicles the strong influence of Judeo-Christian thought on our nation’s history. Features eye-catching illustrations, sidebars, glossary, and index.
