5.0 out of 5 stars Great help for those who want a better understanding of political issues from a Christian Perspective, March 28, 2012
This review is from: America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great (Hardcover)
I still have a couple chapters left to read, but find this book a great resource for not only understanding the foundation of what made America great, but understanding the different components of our government and American way of life. Some have said that they don't want boring history, but I for one am thankful for all the historical references and quotes from our founding fathers, as it really helps us understand what their intentions were when formulating the American democracy. As for his qualifications in writing such a book, Dr. Carson mentions numerous times that key "fathers" were also physicians and that their intentions were that more of a variety of professionals would be involved in government, rather than lawyers and politicians. And his logical perspective certainly makes sense.

I also enjoyed the personal stories and illustrations Dr. Carson uses to help us understand different issues.

I borrowed this book from our local library to read first, but now I am getting ready to purchase it from Amazon, to add as a valuable piece to my personal collection. I would definitely recommend this book for someone who wishes to understand more on this subject from a Christian perspective.

America -

Home of the free and the brave.

Americans -

We are all, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters of the One.

Not one of us, Human Beings, is any better, nor special, nor smarter than the other.

The color of our 'outer skin' makes no difference.

Whether we like it or not, we are all sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, while in the 'physical' on this intolerant and hate-filled planet.

We are all the color 'red' inside.

When a 'human being' bleeds, either from a war, or senseless street violence, 'red blood' covers Mother Earth.

Human beings have a very nasty habit of 'LABELING' another fellow human being, which essentially leads to forgetting that we are all, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters.

LOVE, is the only thing that KILLS an angry man.

The current 'dysfunctional mentality' state of mankind's way of thinking is jeopardizing all human life on earth.

All Human Beings are in the same boat, and all together, we're sinking and sinking fast.

Hell awaits all mankind, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, unless we drastically change our 'destructive' way of thinking.

We need a Patriotic American, who uses 'common sense.'

America needs Dr. Ben Carson for President.
