Another Evangelical Scholar Critiques David Barton’s The Jefferson Lies

Back in August, Glenn Sunshine, one of the evangelical scholars Jay Richards asked to read Getting Jefferson Right and The Jefferson Lies, provided a summary of his reactions to both books on his blog. Better late than never getting it on the blog here.

    Amazing how Barton is getting it from all sides. It’s too bad that he has brainwashed even his own self that he would never recant his words.

  • A very good, very thoughtful blog entry.

    Extremely balanced and well-written article. Would love to see how Barton would bash this guy…lol!
