Overview

America was founded by great men and women who had a great faith in God. Our country's Constitution, great institutions, & laws are rooted & grounded on the significant principles of the Bible. That is our rich heritage. Now under attack in this great "one nation under God" are all things pertaining to prayer, the Bible, & God. In America's God & Its Founding Fathers, by Jerry R. Self, the author returns to the writings & speeches of our Founding Fathers and, from their own words, using their diaries, journals, letters, & speeches, rather than what others have said about them, seeks to glean a true & accurate understanding of who they were, what they did, what they believed, & what they wanted for America.This unique, insightful, & thought-provoking book makes the argument that a return to the original Constitution & other documents that helped to birth a great nation will prove that religion was meant to play a much larger part in American society today. In the words of the author, "We, the people of these United States, must know our heritage, teach it to our children & grandchildren, & defend it at all costs, as did our forefathers. This book is intended to be an historical defense of our Christian heritage."
