Abandoning the rather common and cynical view that history is but a series of grim problems, SHARE THE INHERITANCE takes you on an exhilarating tour of historical gifts created in Britain and America. The book is packed with gold nuggets of information, little-known facts, color illustrations, stories about the men and women who triumphed over hatred and oppression to create the gifts of the Inheritance, a timeline and a study guide.
Like the underground aquifers and pipes which supply us with water, the Inheritance is often overlooked though it is life-giving. The authors have experienced life without the Inheritance, and know how desperately hard it is to live without freedom, fair play, delight in reason, a covenant of justice between leader and people, the right to self-defense, equality of opportunity, forgiveness, and trust, to name a few of the gifts. This history can inspire young Americans, and give adults a refreshing review of the crucial and positive events behind America. The inspiration of Christianity is addressed. Intriguing facts are footnoted.
