Age of Revelation
The Escondido Theology
While Thomas Paine's Age of Reason gets a great deal of press from skeptics, misinformed separationists, and atheists of every stripe, almost no one mentions Elias Boudinot's book-length response.
Paine is considered to be an American Founding Father, and yet, unlike Paine, Boudinot actually served in a civil capacity in the United States that included work on the Constitution. Paines only elective office was in France. Boudinot is a true American Founding Father. Paine had no role in the founding conventions of America and their documents.
American Vision has rescued Elias Boudinot's The Age of Revelation from the dust bin of history, put there and covered over by academics who fear that their students will find out that they've been lied to about Americas founding. Boudinot understood that Good government generally begins in the family, and if the moral character of a people once degenerate, their political character must soon follow.
Newly typeset and published as a smythe-sewn (not glued) hardback with a beautifully designed dust jacket, this limited edition is the finest version of this valuable work that you will find. Original copies are impossible to find. Boudinot was not an academic, and yet The The Age of Revelation surpasses most of what is passed off today as Christian scholarship.
