This acclaimed biography explores the religious life of Thomas Jefferson and the contribution his strident commitment to religious liberty made to the formation of the nation. Renowned historian Edwin Gaustad chronicles Jefferson's intellectual growth, paying particular attention both to Jefferson's private struggle to come to grips with his own faith and to his public role as champion of religious liberty. Now featuring a striking new cover, this volume is must reading for anyone interested in the religious life of one of America's most significant figures.ContentsForeword, by Mark A.
