BOOK REVIEW: Rediscovering God In America

PC Study Bible Data
This book written by Newt & Callista Gingrich, gives readers a “walking” tour of Washington, D.C.    

This work is a good reminder of just how spiritual and God-fearing our founding fathers were.  I enjoyed the quotations as well as the photographs that are a part of this book.  The “tour” takes you through The National Archives, The Washington Monument, The Jefferson Memorial, The Lincoln Memorial, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, The Capitol Building, The Supreme Court, The Library of Congress, The Ronald Reagan Building, The White House, The World War II Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery.   

I had the privilege of visiting Washington, D. C. twice as a teenager and enjoyed a refresher of what it was like to see our nation’s capitol.  Unfortunately, American History is so watered down now in our schools, that it is up to *us* to teach our children why and how America was founded.    There is no doubt in my mind that this country was built out of a desire to worship God freely, and this book is good evidence of the spiritual thirst of our forefathers.  Although many public buildings have removed the Ten Commandments from display, it is engraved in bronze on the floor of The National Archives – a very evident reminder of the Christian beliefs that our country was founded upon.  This book would make a great gift for the patriotic person on your Christmas list!

This book was provided free for review by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
