It is inspiring to realize each generation had its own set of challenges to confront. Praying people were action-oriented. They prayed, they listened to God, and they followed up accordingly. Things were changed for the positive as a result.
Federer is to be further commended for showing the reflective process various thinkers have gone through. They did not blindly accept what was handed down to them necessarily, but examined the claims of Christanity for themselves, individually, tesing the spirits...and being convinced in their own individual cases that Jesus is indeed, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. These historical writings leave a legacy of well examined lives. The perponderance of the evidence shows that America was founded by Christians who were seeking to do God's will. They established a "Christian nation" which they identified as such in repeated cases.
Federer even quotes people who have been obstructionists to the Gospel over the years. Even some of these people have acknowledged that the United States is a "Christian nation." The editor has done an outstanding job of bringing these myriad sources stretching out over the centuries into one volume. The sections on Christopher Columbus and George Washington are lenghty, but well worth reading. It shows, from their own journal entries their true motivation as opposed to the distortions given by some revisionist speculators.
Throughout my search and in all the documents and books I have read, I have attempted to understand the inner souls of our founders, their families, their philosophies, their beliefs and their hopes. It saddens me greatly, that I did not have this book to read prior to starting that great and rewarding adventure.
For it confirms what it has taken me a youthful lifetime to find out for myself and to develope an in depth understanding which I believe I have finally arrived at.
This book is the quentisential prerequisite to understanding the true American Dream, it's purpose and our founders original intentions in all their thoughts, words and deeds. American youth, parents, administrators, scholars, and politicians need this book to bring them back to the true founders path. That path based upon the realities of their understanding and not the falsehoods of our hypocritical scholars of today.
America's God and Country should be required reading in every single school room, every office building, every legal office and should sit on the bench beside every single Judge in this land. Especially the United States Supreme Court whom seem to have completely lost their way, their duty and their limits of interference.Read more ›
What has been scissored out? Any mention, or at any rate any positive mention, of religion and the role it has played in the unfolding history of America. This censorship has led to profound misunderstandings about everything from the Thanksgiving at Plymouth to the importance of the Bible as a guide in the establishment and form of American government. Federer's sourcebook helps reveal these largely suppressed realities.
You have only to glance through this book to know how very much it shows how much our fore fathers believed in God and how they looked to Him for guidance, especially in the hard times such as the civil war. One quote from the book was: During the Civil War, President Lincoln overheard someone remark that he hoped "the Lord was on the Union's side." Lincoln gave a straightforward reply: "I am not at all concerned about that, for I know that the Lord is always on the side of the right. But it is my constant anxiety and prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord's side."
You can find comments on almost any subject. It's great as a resource book.
