“Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God: The Role of Christianity in the American Revolution” from Christian Faith Publishing author Daniel Stackhouse Jr., PhD is a thought-provoking presentation of evidence that in addition to what is traditionally taught in textbooks about the Stamp Act (“No taxation without representation”), the Boston Tea Party, and the Declaration of Independence, Christian thought, preaching and practice helped to create and sustain colonial resistance to British policies and led to the birth of the American republic.

“Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God: The Role of Christianity in the American Revolution”: an introduction to the subject of religion in the founding of a secular republic. “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God: The Role of Christianity in the American Revolution” is the creation of published author Daniel Stackhouse Jr., PhD, a teacher at Cypress College in Cypress, California who enjoys reading, movies, sports, news, and politics. Dr. Stackhouse shares, “Often when the subject of religion and the American Revolution is written about or discussed, people fall into one of two camps. The first proclaims that America was founded as a Christian nation based upon the Bible and its teachings. Meanwhile, the other declares that America was created as a completely secular country and that Christianity, the Bible, God, and Jesus had absolutely nothing to do with it.”

In “Rebellion to Tyrants Is Obedience to God: The Role of Christianity in the American Revolution,” Daniel S. Stackhouse Jr. argues that Christianity played a significant role in the creation of the American republic. While acknowledging that the revolution birthed a nation with a secular constitution and therefore a secular government, Stackhouse also presents evidence that Christian thought, preaching and practice helped to create and sustain colonial resistance to British policies and lead to the founding of the United States of America.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Daniel Stackhouse Jr.’s new book is a fascinating book on the significance of Christian thought and ideals in the resistance that ultimately led to the American Revolution and the birth of the United States of America.
