From the back: "In the sweltering summer of 1789, James Madison penned what would become the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. In the first sixteen words of this spare prose, the founding fathers of a young government pledged separation of church and state, thus guaranteeing religious freedom for its citizens and establishing a free marketplace for religion in the United States. Utterly unprecedented in Western history, this construction of a government without the interlocking authority of religion set a new course for faith and politics and has produced a vibrant religious culture unmatched anywhere in the world. First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty details the progression of religious liberty from pilgrims and Puritans to the creation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and how the First Amendment shaped a new nation. The rich history explored in this documentary through expert commentary and rich cinematic historic recreations will increase your knowledge of--and gratitude for--a nation that protects the free exercise of faith. Companion book also available."
