Why are Americans so willing to relinquish the ideal of self-government to an enlarging and ever-encroaching federal government? Why are we relinquishing our property rights? How can we accept imposed limits on our religious freedom? Who should be held responsible for the nation?
The Bible and the Constitution has the answer to these questions and many more perplexing challenges. It is for those who cherish the Constitution and hold self-governance dear. As each generation is less literate in the history and principles of liberty, this book is a daybreak of truth.
This primer on American liberty attests to the vital role of the Bible in American history. The Bible has been our 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.
This new edition commemorates the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Compact when a small group of Pilgrims landed at Plimoth, Massachusetts and dealt with the supreme issue of all civilizations—how they might govern and be governed. The Mayflower Compact became “the first foundation of their government in this place” (Bradford) and set the stage for the growth of a Christian self-governing nation.
The Forward includes essays from Dr. Gai Ferdon, Marshall Foster, Stephen McDowell, Paul Jehle and Rosalie Slater. The book includes study questions for each chapter, illustrations, facsimile reproduction of artillery sermons and the Year of the Bible Declarations (1983, President Ronald Reagan).
