Other historians are wrong: George Washington was no deist or secular humanist or atheist, he was an Anglican who kept Jesus in his heart but, for political reasons, out of virtually all of his public. ambassador, has served under Democratic and Republican administrations.

Washington's God book. The Novaks are forceful in their arguments and obviously hold very strong views on the religiosity of the Father of Our Country. They don't get in the way of the book but they are very clear nonetheless. Still, one of the few books out there that provides a large amount of information on Washington's religion in one place and No new scholarship is really revealed in this book but if you are looking for a succinct overview of the religious views of George Washington this is a good place to start.

I do love this book. It is well written by father and daughter who research and do very nice auto-biographies of famous people. I loved learning more about George Washington and the way things really were during his lifetime. I enjoyed learning about his talents, education, religious and spiritual beliefs AND how he portrayed those beliefs to friends and the public. VERY good, insightful books. It gave me a better understanding and appreciation for the Father of our country and those who worked and fought with and for him. :)

'Washington's God is an excellently researched book by Michael and Jana Novak. Their research (structured well for anyone to easily read) will clarify any questions and confusion about President George Washington's devotion to his Christian Faith. You will also see how President Washington's Christian Faith influenced and shaped him throughout his life especially during the War of Independence. Not only will you clarify any questions you have about George Washington's faith but you will also appreciate his attributes, character and integrity stemming from it.

This has been the book I have been looking for. I wanted an honest assessment of what the faith of George Washington really was, not just what some people wanted it to be. This book showed that. I am impressed both with Washington's deep Anglican, Christian faith, but also how he was gracious in not pushing that or using it to disrespect people with different varieties of faith.

It's not a light read, but it's a worthy read. This book brought home just what an exceptional man GW was, all legends aside. He was universally respected and and a man of deep faith.

This book was commisioned to provide a take away item from Mt Vernon for the general interest visitor in order to provide some more insight, but not an in depth book for a historical researcher. I personally highlight most books that I read, therefore not really being welcomed at a public library -- I enjoy lending, but not borrowing most of the books that I read. There is a lot of yellow after my read.

Four members of a morning Bible study requested that I purchase copies, based upon my excitment alone. The revelation of Washington's activities as vestryman over 12+ years, attending church services 6 to 12 miles away from Mt Vernon on a regular basis, even when the local minister was absent, and so forth confirm the fact that Washington truly acted as the result of the Holy Spirit, but did not wear his faith on his sleeve nor attempt to convert others.

I personally feel much more in touch with this one facet of our founder as a sort of fill in the numbers of a painting of Washington. He cannot be tied down to beliefs by his direct written words, but his correspondance with others indirectly confirms his beliefs. The author had many unpublished letters available specifically for this project. This is a masterly crafted exposition of a founder that seems to have been presented to the public as a very stoic statuesque surface only figure.
