LAUS DEO! Two Latin words inscribed on the Capstone of the Washington Monument poignantly demonstrate the historical reality of the “American self-understanding of religious freedom and political liberty” are inseparably connected in the proposition synthesized in the founders opinions, letters, documents and laws and codified for all mankind and history that they found “these truths self evident, that all men are created equal with certain unalienable rights; that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS.”

Mans rights and liberties are the gifts freely dispensed by the sovereign hand of God, the Creator/Ruler, the only Potentate of heaven and earth. (This is in contrast from the Liberal, humanist view that any allowed rights of the individual are permitted conditionally at the pleasure of and benefit of the state. Any government powerful enough to give you anything, is powerful enough to take away anything.)

The book’s lasting significance is from the presentation of: The role of Faith in the Founding, History and Future of America.

I loved this book. I actually read about this book in The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. After reading it I don't understand how the courts could vote to take "under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance. It included quotes that previous presidents has made of God in their speeches. It started with Washington and went through the years and talked of their monuments. Proves that our country was built in the faith of God.… (more)

My rating is 5 stars.
Most of Americans are aware of the battles of expressions of faith and other threats to our Constitutional freedoms. Perhaps for too long we have depended on schools, churches and other institutions to continue teaching as well as promoting citizenship. Times have certainly changed since I grew up when I recited the Pledge of Allegiance or sing our National Anthem before my school day began. Today, most kids don’t.
I believe we as Americans need to take into our hands the task to pass down to the next generation the history of America, both the good and the bad of her history. Here is a book that provides such an aid to teach, talk and remind ourselves and coming generations what the foundations of America are regardless of what learning institutions, church or other social groups we are part of. In fact, this is a book that historians would love and even young children can view the pictures and begin to grow the heart of a strong citizen.
Many have paid the ultimate sacrifice along with many still serving to protect our country from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. If we don’t share our nation’s true history, there is a gap in the heart and minds of Americans that goes unfilled that perhaps makes them unaware of whom, as a nation, we really are and what is at stake if we remain silent.
So I heartily ask that readers obtain a copy for their own personal library and consider giving a copy to friends or other family members as a gift. We can ill afford to not look at what our foundation for this country is and help in whatever way we can to build up that foundation for future generations! People will find it is a quick read, full of information and one that helps us to remember those who have gone before us and left us a rich legacy and nation!
