Eric Metaxas Used David Barton’s Work to Help Him Write His New Book “If You Can Keep It” (AUDIO)

Even though Eric Metaxas didn't footnote him, he said on his radio show today that he used David Barton's work to help him with history for his new book, If You Can Keep It. He lauded Barton's historical work as helping him understand the Christian foundations of the nation.This explains a lot, including his smug reaction to actual historians who have exposed the problems in his new book.  Barton didn't spend much time trying to defend errors until his brand was threatened. Now that … [Read more...]

David Barton: Christian Professors Oppose Him Because They Were Taught by Pagan Professors

David Barton has said things like that before but at Charis Bible College last week he claimed he has the truth because he has "all the original documents." Watch:In this video, David Barton renews his war on Christian college professors. He claims we were all trained by "pagan" professors and just say what they taught. However, he is right because he has all the original documents. It is hard to imagine a more arrogant position. He surely knows that any documents of consequence in a … [Read more...]

David Barton: Donald Trump is God’s Candidate in This Election

So he told his Wallbuilders audience today.Right Wing Watch has the audio.What is maddening about Barton's description is that he was asked for advice by a delegate who doesn't believe Trump should represent the GOP. Instead of pointing the delegate to the Free the Delegate movement, he told him to accept Trump as "God's candidate."Barton rationalized his advice: "One thing I know for sure is that in the race of primaries, we had a lot really good God guys in there," Barton said. … [Read more...]

David Barton Inflates Numbers for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Women

Yesterday, David Barton's Wallbuilders radio program hosted Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians. Barton and his co-host Rick Green once mistakenly called ACP the "leading association" of pediatricians.Cretella was on the program to tout the ACP's stance on transgender issues; I may have more to say about her interview in subsequent posts. However, after the interview, Barton made a claim which he offered as a way to say women should not be in combat. At … [Read more...]

With David Barton as Principal Officer, Non-Profit Mercury One Again Gave $100k to Barton’s Wallbuilders For Disaster Relief

Deja vu all over again. As was true in 2013, Mercury One with David Barton as principal officer and one of three board members gave $100k to David Barton's Wallbuilders non-profit. Again in 2014, Barton is listed as Mercury One's principal officer:And as last year, Barton is one of three board members along with Beck associate Joseph Kerry and Beck's wife Tania.This year Barton got a 4% raise:See last year's post for the possible problems with this.Last year the funds … [Read more...]

Wallbuilders Live: David Barton is America’s Premier Historian

Last week, co-host of David Barton's radio show Wallbuilders Live Rick Green started introducing Barton as "America's premier historian." Listen"Green also introduces Barton with this description on May 10 and 16. He adds the title historian to the introduction of Barton's son Tim.I suspect historians and regular readers would not choose that phrase to describe Barton (e.g., how many premier historians have their books pulled from publication over historical errors?). In fact, that … [Read more...]

Even At Liberty University, David Barton Is Known For Historical Fallacies

Previously, I believed that at Liberty University, David Barton was viewed positively as a great historian. Since he speaks there frequently, some in certain circles must believe that. However, I was surprised to learn that Barton's reputation is not as positive in the history department. John Fea was able to get a first hand look into the matter from a former history graduate student at Liberty. Russ Allen has his masters degree from Liberty and attended a talk given last week at Liberty by … [Read more...]
