Since I love history it was not hard to be engaged by this well written book. The author does an outstanding job of proving how this great nation was founded and that our forefathers intended for our nation to be formed by the pages of Scripture.
Jerry Newcombe seems to be on a personal journey to save America from secularization. With a precise historical background, Newcombe gives the reader a picture of the key players of early America. From politicians to judges, from clergymen to businessmen, it is clearly evident that these men used the Bible as their main reference in writing the founding documents of America.
If you enjoy American history or are interested in the spiritual foundation of this nation you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
The Book That Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation (Nordskog Publishing) by Jerry Newcombe is a definitive volume on the Christian roots of our nation. Those who want to restore knowledge of our Christian heritage have their work cut out. As secularism continues its stranglehold on American education, we move further and further away from retaining our Christian roots. The Book That Made America will challenge anyone to know the true origin of our Nation and to fight to keep it. Newcombe hopes to educate Americans by providing the facts of history, proving that America began as a Christian nation and American’s have every right to preserve and uphold that heritage.
All that is positive in our foundation can be traced back to the Scriptures. Recently, President Obama declared that America is not a Christian nation, while Newsweek announced the demise of Christian America. This book is the answer to America’s critics with the facts of history.
