    Compared to other countries in the world, Americans enjoy an astonishing range of freedoms, including a broad range of rights related to religion. With Christian churches dotting almost every corner in communities across the nation, it is hard to remember there was a time when religious liberty was a distant dream and a cause for which many died.

    In a thorough review of this troubled history, you will be introduced to the ideas and sacrifices that kept the dream of religious liberty alive until it became a powerful cornerstone of a fledging nation. While some leaders of the faith are revealed as religious persecutors, it is important to understand the political and social context of these events because it lays the foundation for the ideals and protections now found in the U.S. Constitution.

    The History of Religious Liberty:

    • Reveals why the popular idea of the Enlightenment being at the heart of the Bill of Rights is simply wrong
    • Takes an unflinching look at persecution of the Church as part of a well-researched survey of critical historical points
    • Reflects the reaction of everyday Christians to the repressive forces of tyranny echoing in the struggle for religious liberty globally today.

    These compelling stories of both well-known and obscure martyrs of the faith each help to advance the true birth of religious freedom. Their simple and courageous acts of defiance against tyranny and intolerance stand as a testament to the truth that God is the ultimate author of liberty.
