Publisher's Description

In America, we have a problem of collective amnesia. God has blessed the United States of America perhaps more than any other nation before us. Yet, while basking in the blessing, we have forgotten that the hand of God made us a nation. Like someone long asleep, like a collective Rip Van Winkle, we must wake up from our futile dreams. Our future depends on America rising from its fatal forgetfulness, and remembering the Godly principles expressed in so many of our founding documents and general literature, which are the bedrock of this great nation. Can remembering God's role in American history bring us to a spiritual awakening—a great revival, leading to a national reformation that can spare us from our nation’s apparent death spiral?

American Amnesia is a collection of essays written in the last several years by author, radio and television host, and TV producer Jerry Newcombe, D.Min., focusing on God and government, on the American experiment, current society, and church and state matters. Newcombe possesses two unique resources, one material and one a special gift. Through his many interviews, he has garnered a unique and valuable collection of first-hand quotes from many prominent leaders of our day. Then, with skills honed in his longtime media and publishing work with Dr. D. James Kennedy Ministries, Dr. Newcombe sheds a bright light on our current events by drawing us consistently back to the basic principles of America's founding. From his study of original source documents, he brings an almost unparalleled knowledge of early America. With his help, we can see our moment of history unfolding through the lens of Biblical truth.

Standing against forces intending to undermine God's plan for humanity in society, American Amnesia is the antidote for a nation's forgetfulness.

Editorial Reviews

America is in the middle of a great spiritual battle. Our weapons are spiritual. In American Amnesia, Jerry Newcombe fights back against the atheistic deconstruction of America with historic, Biblical truth. God will prevail.

Joseph Farah, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, WND.com, WND Books, WND Films


What happens when a nation forgets about God? We can see that in history, and we are seeing it here in America. Jerry Newcombe brings together a collection of his columns that remind us of our history and focus on our current political debates. And a key element has been the attack on religious liberty in general and attacks on Christianity in particular. American Amnesia reminds us of the heavy price we pay when we forget about God.

Kerby Anderson, President, Probe Ministries; Host, Point of View radio talk show


One well-accepted truism is that “ideas have consequences.” True also is that those ideas are “culturally-codified” by the choices we make. Said another way: “Ideas have little consequence until you act upon them.” This reality is exemplified by the rise, and some say the ongoing decline, of Western Civilization, based upon its initial embrace and subsequent rejection of absolute truth.

In antiquity, Procurator Pontius Pilate responded to Christ’s claim of having come to “testify to the truth” with the now-clichéd response: “What is truth?” In our day, such rhetorical argumentation has been replaced by the very real and deadly consequences of denying that truth.

It is this latter-day reality that Dr. Jerry Newcombe explores in a powerful series of essays titled American Amnesia. In them, Newcombe’s trenchant analysis helps us make important connections between the active rejection of God’s truth and a culture that seems to be on moral life support. In doing so, Newcombe proves the Churchillian axiom: “The farther you look back, the farther forward you can see.”

Frank Wright, Ph.D., President & CEO, D. James Kennedy Ministries


You can’t have a nation built on freedom and personal responsibility without heaven’s core principles and a rule of law. The Biblical worldview is where we were founded as a nation and where we should return to as a nation. I am pleased to recommend Dr. Jerry Newcombe’s new book, American Amnesia because he speaks the truth in love.

Star Parker, Syndicated Columnist & President of CURE


Newcombe writes to the heart, both the heart of the issue he’s addressing and, more importantly, right to the heart of the reader. A great asset for “getting things straight” from a Biblical worldview in all issues addressing the increasing misconstructions of our current culture. Highly recommended!

Dr. Carole Adams

Founder and Board Member, Stone Bridge School; President, Foundation for American Christian Education, Chesapeake, Virginia


Jerry Newcombe is one of the foremost Christian commentators on American culture and government today. His modern insights are uniquely combined with his knowledge and understanding of America’s history, making his commentaries especially important reading for anyone who wants to keep our nation free and prosperous. As Benjamin Franklin once told a Philadelphia matron, our Founders established a free republic. Keeping that republic free is our challenge as Americans today, and Newcombe has an important and unique understanding of that challenge. This book should be required reading for all politicians and for any citizens interested in keeping America true to the values and goals on which our nation was founded.

David Gibbs III, President and General Counsel, National Center for Life and Liberty
