Mark is quite the history fan, not myself. However I received a new book to review recently and it is FULL of amazing information. It will take me weeks to dig through all the treasures and nuggets in this book. The book is The Book That Made America:How the Bible Formed Our Nation by Jerry Newcombe. I have included the summary and bio info below.
Newcombe gives historical background and countless stories and accounts that trace our heritage and roots as a Nation back to the Word of God and our forefathers faith in the One True God. Lots of deep history and pictures galore. The kind of thing though that I want to know in my head and heart to share with my boys. And Yea! I have a copy for one blessed blog reader that makes a comment to say “I want that book!”. Or something like that:) Happy reading!
The Book That Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation (Nordskog Publishing) by Jerry Newcombe is a definitive volume on the Christian roots of our nation. Those who want to restore knowledge of our Christian heritage have their work cut out. As secularism continues its stranglehold on American education, we move further and further away from retaining our Christian roots. The Book That Made America will challenge anyone to know the true origin of our Nation and to fight to keep it. Newcombe hopes to educate Americans by providing the facts of history, proving that America began as a Christian nation and American’s have every right to preserve and uphold that heritage.
All that is positive in our foundation can be traced back to the Scriptures. Recently, President Obama declared that America is not a Christian nation, while Newsweek announced the demise of Christian America. This book is the answer to America’s critics with the facts of history.
