Was Our Nation Founded on the Judeo-Christian Faith?

You will find out reading this book just how deeply entrenched God and the Bible was in the lives of our Founding Fathers. Even the Deist, Thomas Jefferson, believed as his 1785 Notes on the State of Virginia proves:
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free."
Newt Gingrich takes readers on a walking tour of DC to show us how God played a very large part in our founding. He points out all the ways the monuments speak to His glory and the glory of our free (for now) nation. Callista Gingrich's photos are remarkable. Everyone should own a copy of this book especially if you are going to take a trip to DC in the near (or far) future.
Don't ever again let anyone tell you that our nation was founded as a secular nation without God's blessing or divine purpose. Reading this book will put the first dent in that very wrong belief!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for this post.

Not only that, the US coin/dollar clearly states "In G-d We Trust", and the Pledge of Allegiance includes the phrase "under G-d".
