The United States A Christian Nation is U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Josiah Brewer’s lecture series on the unmistakably Christian origins and values of the United States.Drawing from a wealth of original sources, such as the colonial charters, state constitutions, and legal statutes of early American history, Justice Brewer makes the undeniable case for the Christian character of this nation, and encourages his listeners to preserve and contribute to America’s Christianity in the face of adversity.American Vision reprinted this book for the first time in nearly 100 years in 1996, and it again went out of print. We are pleased to present Brewer's fascinating study of the Christian Heritage of America once again!Every pebble of evidence he turns up cries out: "America is a Christian nation!" Brewer's landmark work studies declarations of the court, the recognition of Sunday, Chaplains, colonial charters, civil liberty, charitable organizations, and much more.This edition includes the text of Justice Brewer’s most famous Supreme Court decision, Church of the Holy Trinity vs. United States, as well as an historical introduction to the case by Herb Titus.
