One of six titles in The Bible in American Culture series published to celebrate the Society of Biblical Literature's centennial, this volume explores the intersection of politics and religion from the colonial era through the 1950s. Contributors focus on constitutional law, economics, community, and the development of political realism in relationship to the Bible. Each book in the series provides key information for anyone studying the interplay of the Bible and American culture from the foundation of the United States through the mid- to later twentieth century.
