We watched it as a family and LOVED it!

Without this influence, without underlying personal and civic virtue, the future of our country is in doubt.
No one of consequence
I would hope the supplier of this product will get back to me and please send a unit that can be watched.

Unlike the previous reviewer Fellini, I found the film to be completely non partisan. There are quotes from FDR, Truman and JFK as well as all the Founding Fathers. This is not propaganda but history. As much as he would like to, Mr. Fellini can't dispute any of the historical details that are in this informative documentary. Americans need to refute secularists who insist that the First Amendment is about freedom From religion. It is not and this documentary confirms the belief of the framers of the constitution that the freedom on which our government was established was a gift from God. I recommend this DVD highly to the ACLU and other civil rights organizations that have forgotten what the Bill of Rights actually mean.

Newt Gingrich's PhD in history really shines through in both this DVD and the book it evolved from. Gingrich and his wife provide an excellent factual -- but nonpolitical -- perspective of how the founders of this country felt about God and how God inspired them as they laid the foundations for what became the United States of America. The DVD does an especially good job of showing why and how the founders created the firewall between government and religion. The authors correct the common misconception of what the founders were trying to avoid when they separated church and state in the founding documents of this country. I was so impressed with the DVD that I sent copies to both of our sons and all of our nephews and nieces.

I admired the book version of "Rediscovering God in America" Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's Historyand I encourage you to read it. It is now out in an illustrated version that makes the point of the walking tour even more compelling.

However, I think the point of the book is told very well in this DVD, even though this amounts to an abridged form of the book. The first portion of the video points out the role of religion in the founding and the early days of our nation and is told by a variety of historians, politicians, and knowledgeable people from both sides of the political aisle.

Newt and Callista Gingrich then take us on a walking tour of our nations important buildings and memorials in central Washington D.C. and shows the important role religion played in the minds of those whose minds created our government. As they were in the book, the Gingrich's are clear that this is not about advocating any particular faith or sect, it is about the connection between religion and moral order. While some nowadays claim that religion is not required for morality, and they are free to make that case, it is not true that our nation requires the banning of religion from the public square or our political discussions. Nor do we need to apologize for our religious beliefs informing our political beliefs as long as we do not also believe we have the right to compel others to share our views.

The video is just short of an hour long and should be viewed in every family in the country. I hope you take the time to view it with your children with a good history of our country at hand.

This is a very well done video tour of the Washington DC buildings, monuments, and government facilities that traces their roots back to the builder's and founder's intent. It points out that the founders of this country believed that you could not have a free society unless it was founded upon a believe in God as the source of a value system and moral code that required a personal responsibility that supported free and open institutions. Newt Gingrich should be elected president!

This brief documentary offers a reminder of the vital interplay between religion and government down through our nation's history, with a particular emphasis on the Founders, such as Washington, Jefferson and Franklin, among many others. It examines the ample historical evidence of the often intense religiosity of these elder statesmen and their views on the role of religion in public life. These views found expression in our main governmental institutions, including (of all places) the Supreme Court. The conclusion is very different from what one would expect in light of the last few decades of open hostility to religion in the public square.

In my opinion, the single greatest contribution of this video (and the accompanying book) is to take up afresh the evidence of the Founders' intent behind the separation doctrine. One of the most mischaracterized documents in that debate is Jefferson's famous letter to the Danbury Baptists, who were seeking assurance that their particular mode of observance would not be squelched. Jefferson wrote to them of the need to maintain a wall of separation between church and state as a means of safeguarding religious liberty. The evidence, however, does not in any way support the more modern argument that Jefferson was hostile to religion in general, or that he held anticlerical, deistic views. He merely advocated that clerical and governmental AUTHORITY not be permitted to overlap, so that all persons would be free to practice their religion without fear of persecution. In other words, Jefferson championed freedom of religion, not from it. Neither did he seek the complete expungement of religious observance in public life, as many today would have us believe.
