Details

An atheist’s analysis of the Founding Father’s document on deism and the philosophy of Jesus.

Unlike any other presidential commentaries in print, Akashic’s US Presidents series pairs the writings of these American historical figures with contemporary commentators whose critical viewpoints provide a counterbalance to the overly reverent and conservative analyses that invariably accompany presidential writings.

In this volume, Percival Everett, acclaimed author of such novels as Telephone and Erasure and PEN/Faulkner Award finalist, takes an atheist’s-eye-view of the little-known “Jefferson Bible,” the third president’s response to the King James Bible.
