America's Christian Heritage (book)
by Gary DeMar
From Plymouth Rock to Independence Hall and beyond, the pages of American history overflow with evidence of the profound role Christianity has played in the founding of our nation. A study of the primary sources leaves no doubt that Christianity served as the foundation for our nation's construction, both in its laws and political structures. Author Gary DeMar answers today’s secular denials of America's Christian heritage as he presents evidence from a broad range of historical sources by letting the record speak for itself.
The thought-provoking chapter on the “Ten Commandments on Trial” is an eye-opener given the debate that is going on over the truth behind the many displays of the Ten Commandments in and around the Supreme Court and the Capitol. Other chapters include:
- By the Providence of Almighty God: Christianity in Colonial America
- Through Divine Goodness: Christianity in the Colonial Constitutions
- In the Year of Our Lord: Christianity and the Constitution
- To Lay Christ at the Bottom: Christianity in the Colleges
- In God We Trust: Christianity in Our Nation’s Capitol
- The Separation Myth: Christianity and the First Amendment
- The Ten Commandments on Trial: A Supreme Legal Fight
- God Bless America: Giving Thanks to God in America
Oversized with color images throughout, this is a wonderful book to keep out for display. Makes a great gift!
