Vocal Point-John Eidsmoe

Topic: James Madison and His Legacy.

The founding fathers are often presented as if they were men of the Enlightenment. And implied in that remark is that they were therefore not believers in the Bible and Jesus. But what does their own life and their own actions and their own writings say, on that front? Law professor John Eidsmoe says that the vast majority of the founding fathers were professing Christians and were active members in Trinitarian churches (Trinitarian as opposed to Unitarian). John Eidsmoe wrote the classic book, Christianity and the Constitution. The book contains several mini-biographies. One of those is of James Madison, who was a key architect of the Constitution. John Eidsmoe joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss James Madison and his faith. www.morallaw.org
