Conservative historian David Barton, a knowledgeable source when it comes to understanding America’s faith roots, is a frequent guest on GBTV.

Barton has been an advocate for the notion that Christianity was at the root of the nation’s founding and that the faith system has played a key role in shaping American history. This detail, he argues, has been removed from history books and is not discussed adequately in classrooms. His organization, WallBuilders, is focused on promoting this long-lost history and defending the nation’s Christian heritage.
