What do you know about the United States of America?
According to a report from Newsweek magazine, 38 percent of Americans given a Newsweek citizenship test failed, most because they couldn't define the Bill of Rights. In addition, more than half failed a standard civics test.
The Intercollegiate Studies Institute stated, "The Founding Fathers understood that our constitutional system and the liberty it protects could endure only if Americans retained an understanding of our founding principles."
Some of those are: The New England Confederation stated that the purpose of the colonies was "to advance the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the liberties of the gospel in purity with peace."
Harvard College required that each student believe that "the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life."
In 1892, the Supreme Court of the United States declared, "this is a Christian nation."
This volume has been put together to help you learn the truth about this uncommon nation and encourage you understand what caused it to be created. We must all stand in awe of the many incredible people who founded our exceptional country.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a retired minister who was given a mission by our Lord to write this book in order to remind our citizens of the USA what our heritage really is. Just as the land of Canaan was the "Promised Land" for the Jews, America was the "Promised Land" for Christians.
What was your motivation behind this project? To awaken the feeling of being blessed by God as citizens of this "special country".
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A sense of pride in being a part of this monumental nation that was admired by the whole world for 150 or more years after its founding.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was amazed that the mounds of material that the Lord put before me to work with fell in place to form this book almost effortlessly.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Jesus Christ, our Founding Fathers and all the God-fearing, devoted men who built this great nation.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: That I hope they all are inspired by our Christian Heritage and the wonderful people who fought and died to preserve our liberty and freedom over the years.
