Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0533159830, Hardcover)America was founded by great men and women who had a great faith in God. Our country's Constitution, great institutions, and laws are rooted and 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, and God. In America's God and Its Founding Fathers, by Jerry R. Self, the author returns to the writings and speeches of our Founding Fathers and, from their own words, using their diaries, journals, letters, and speeches, rather than what others have said about them, seeks to glean a true and accurate understanding of who they were, what they did, what they believed, and what they wanted from America. This unique, insightful, and thought-provoking book makes the argument that a return to the original Constitution and other documents that helped to birth a great nation will prove that religion was meant to play a much larger part of 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 and grandchildren, and defend it at all costs, as did our forefathers. This book is intended to be an historical defense of our Christian heritage."
