Thomas Nelson Drops ‘The Jefferson Lies’ Book over Factual Errors

The Tennessean’s Bob Smietana reports that Thomas Nelson has ceased distribution of the newest book by conservative Christian author, David Barton. “Barton’s book, The Jefferson Lies, claims to expose liberal myths about Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and the nation’s third president,” writes Smietana. “But a group of conservative scholars says Barton’s take on Jefferson is factually untrue. And a group of ministers from Cincinnati called on Nelson to cancel the book.”
