"Anyone interested in whats gone wrong in Washington, and how to fix it, needs to read this valuable work."
"Defenders of the Constitution, this is a must-read book for you. Most Americans know that our federal government is far too big and far more authoritative than our founders ever intended, and this book shows you how that happened. Buy this book, give it to friends or relatives, and arm yourselves in the fight to restore our Constitution."
"Senator Mike Lee knows how to tell a story. Combining historical fact and his own legal expertise with imagined dialogues and settings, Lee brings the sometimes dry and archaic debates of the constitutional convention in Philadelphia and other episodes to life, and with them the Constitution itself. This is truly an inspired, fascinating, and important book."
Randy Barnett, Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University Law Center; director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution
"Mike Lee won election to the Senate by traveling around his state giving talks about the Constitution. Now he has written a most unusual book, which interweaves lively histories of what he calls the lost clauses of the Constitution with biting critiques of such modern issues as delegation of legislative power to agencies, NSA data collection, church and state, and Obamacare. Readers may not agree with all his conclusions, but they will encounter serious history and a conscientious attempt to grapple with modern issues in light of an enduring Constitution."
Michael W. McConnell, professor of law; director of the Constitutional Law Center, Stanford Law School
"Our Lost Constitution is one of the most fascinating and important books on our founding document that I have ever read. From early childhood on, Senator Mike Lee has studied and honored the United States Constitution. In this book he has combined history and law in an exceptional analysis of the dangers that challenge our constitutional system of government today, why the departure from the founders vision is so detrimental to every American, and how conscientious public officials and concerned citizens can and must join in in restoring obedience to our national charter, which is essential to protecting our liberty and making our democratic republic work again."
Edwin Meese III, former U. S. Attorney General
"Senator Mike Lee took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and this book proves that he takes that oath seriously. Read it, and he will walk you through the key moments in the erosion of our constitutional safeguards. Read it, and he will show you that the cause is not lost."
Larry P. Arnn, president of Hillsdale College
