Jon Meacham's American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, And the Making of a Nation explores the history of a subject that both obsesses and polarizes Americans: religion.

Meacham is the managing editor of Newsweek and author of the bestselling biography Franklin and Winston, about the friendship between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.
