Why are Americans so willing to relinquish
the ideal of self-government to an enlarging and ever-encroaching federal

who cherish the Constitution and hold self-governance dear. As
each generation is less literate in the history and principles of liberty, this

textbook of civil and religious liberty and produced our constitutional government.
Primary source documents outlined in this book authenticate the Bible as the
major influence on the making of the Constitution.
