Format: Paperback
Rather than an ethereal call to Christians to disciple the world (as Christ of course commanded us to do), author Dennis Woods offers a practical course of action for Americans who wish to return to our founding principles under God.
In the first part of the book, Woods analyzes the U.S. Constitution: what it is (and is not); how it was drafted, discussed, and ratified; its humanist and enlightenment underpinnings contrasted with the Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, and Fundamental Orders of Connecticut. Using not polemic, but documents of historical record, the author posits that our Constitution is a covenant-breaking document in effect, if not in intent.
In the second part of the book, Woods follows the trail of legislative, judicial, and bureaucratic accretions which have brought a God-fearing, liberty-loving people to be willing minions of an all-encompassing, godless state. The structure is collapsing, the author posits, because our foundation was bad since the ratification of the Constitution over the strenuous objection of many anti-federalists.
When Patrick Henry said that he would not attend the Constitutional convention because he "...smelt a rat!" this godless foundation is what he was likely referring to.
The final portions of the book are Woods's most valuable contribution: step by step, he maps out strategy and tactics for Christians who wish to see our nation restored. We begin with ourselves, our children, and our churches, seeking change in the culture through long-term engagement. He encourages us to get involved in all public realms -- especially politics -- for the good of all our fellow men, and gives concrete steps for achieving these ends.

Format: Paperback
Woods' book is an eye-opener, especially his discussion of the United States Constitution. We have been told over and over that the Constitution was really a Christian document whose aims and purposes had been corrupted by the liberal leadership throughout our history. Woods, however, shows that in spite of the Godly basis of many U.S. state constitutions, the federal document is terribly flawed and based upon an improper authority: the people and not God.

He is unashamed in calling for a government built upon the principles of the Bible.

The key weakness comes in the later chapters. His call for action is little more than a listing of campaign techniques that any political junkie is well aware of. Otherwise, it is a fine volume.

Format: Paperback
I am so impressed with the historical data of this book, that I gave my copy to a friend in South Carolina... So, I have ordered myself another copy to re-read and use as a resource for essays. If you are a home schooling family or interested in America's heritage and history, this is a must-have for your personal library... Christ is King (see Psalm 2) and Mr. Woods clearly reveals that the Government does rest upon His shoulder.

Praise the LORD!
