Barton's recent book, The Jefferson Lies, which presented Thomas Jefferson as embracing relatively orthodox Christian views until late in life, unleashed an unprecedented torrent of evangelical and conservative criticism, precipitating the decision by Barton's publisher, Thomas Nelson, to pull the book from distribution in 2012. > “The Christian god is a being of terrific character - cruel, vindictive, capricious, and unjust.” Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Jefferson was a Deist. He believed in an Intelligent Designer. He just didn't believe all the myths about Jesus - which is why he made up his own Bible. He removed anything to do with miracles from the gospels, but kept all of Jesus' teachings. This is now called the Jefferson Bible.
