This book is an excellent view of the American Revolution and the events leading up to it from a Christian world-view. It begins with the Reformation and explains how it influenced the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and how the American Revolution probably would never have happened without the Reformation. It then explains about the religion of the settlers in general and a few of the religious controversies in the Colonies, including the trial of Anne Hutchinson over the Antinomian Controversy. I read this book for Starting Points class, and it is an excellent book to read with world-view questions in mind (especially "What is the nature of man?", and "What is the nature of the universe?").
