carl-richardOn Thursday, September 15, at 7:00 p.m., Carl Richard, PhD, professor of history at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, will speak on the subject of his latest book, The Founders and the Bible in the Regis Room of the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend.

Richard’s book examines the Founding Fathers’ relationship with the Bible to assess the conflicting claims of those who argue that they were Christians founding a Christian nation against those who see them as Deists or modern secularists. Richard argues that it is impossible to understand the Founders without understanding the Biblically-infused society that produced them.
