America is a country whose laws and ethics have been deeply influenced by Judeo Christian principles. These facts are a matter of historical record. Rock of the Republic is designed to support individuals, teachers and students with a narrative and instruction regarding America's Founders and understand the influence of the Judeo-Christian teaching on American Law and Ethics.
For hundreds of years, American students have been taught history through the lens of personal liberty, religious freedom, and economic opportunity. Historians wrote that America’s founders and Framers of the Constitution were deeply moral men who believed that our liberties were a gift from God and not from men (the under-pinning of the democratic free market system). Judeo-Christian thinking profoundly influenced American Law through our founders and framers of the Constitution.
The Pulitzer Prize winning author of 1776 and John Adams David McCullough has said that our children’s ignorance of American History is a threat to national security. He is right; ignorance of American history is eroding Americans of their lliberty and protection under the Constitution.
Rock of the Republic provides twelve 55 minute sessions that take students through the ideas of the early settlers, the writings and speeches of the Founding Fathers. It provides historic profiles and quotes of American Settlers, Founders, Framers of the Constitution , and great thinkers like de Tocqueville and Blackstone. Rock of the Republic contains little known quotes from the speeches and meetings of modern leaders like Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy well into the 20th Century.
The author’s two year research effort using both well known texts and speeches, as well as books out of print for decades, prove without a doubt that America is a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and whose Constitution is based upon Biblical morality. Rock of the Republic is a treasure trove of the thoughts and beliefs of those who founded America and wrote her laws.
