More than 200 years later, James Madison’s message still rings true: There is no liberty without faith.
James Madison was a man of quiet faith who was also intellectually inspired in miraculous ways. Often called the Father of the Constitution, Madison believed rights of conscience were gifts of God, and he was thoroughly committed to establishing a nation conceived in liberty.
Throughout his life, thousands of seemingly insignificant events and decisions eventually culminated in the formation of one of the most defining traits of this country: the right to religious freedom. From constitutional scholar Rodney K. Smith, discover how this right became sacred to Madison and how, with a relentlessness borne of faith in God and country, he carefully wove this truth into the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Through Madison’s inspiring story, come to see for yourself proof of God’s hand in the foundation of our nation and the miracles that are still evident in our lives today.
