Note: A full-scale, newly published critique of The Jefferson Lies by David Barton is coming from Professors Warren Throckmorton and Michael Coulter of Grove City College, a largely conservative Christian school in Pennsylvania. Their book Getting Jefferson Right: Fact Checking Claims about Our Third President (Salem Grove Press), argues that Barton "is guilty of taking statements and actions out of context and simplifying historical circumstances." For example, they charge that Barton, in explaining why Jefferson did not free his slaves, "seriously misrepresents or misunderstands (or both) the legal environment related to slavery." - The Gospel Coalition.

Abstract:

"This work is primarily about properly understanding some claims about Thomas Jefferson ... This work is particularly aimed at understanding Jefferson in light of claims made about him by some religious conservatives, especially those by David Barton. ... The aims of this work are quite simple: to be dispassionate in the analysis of the claims about Jefferson and to understand the events in question in their proper theological and cultural context. ... The plan of the book is to take church and state claims first followed by a focus on Jefferson's personal views of the Bible and religion. Then, we [the authors] briefly examine claims relating to the University of Virginia and close with an examination of Jefferson's views of race and his actions as a slave owner"--P. xi-xiii.
