Canada: The Introduction of Christianity in Early Canada
Is there, or was there ever, such a thing as a "Christian" Canada? Contrary to what historical revisionists might claim, Canada has a rich and deep Catholic and Protestant heritage. The motto on the Canadian coat of arms and inscribed on the Peace Tower in Ottawa bears witness to this fact: "A Mari Usque Ad Mare", Latin for "From Sea to Sea" derived from Psalm 72:8. In this short book, Steven R. Martins provides a brief survey of Christianity's introduction to early Canada, and how Canada and the Christian faith were inseparable in terms of its founding identity and aspiring spirit.
