The Book that Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation comprehensively documents, with joy, America's deep roots in the Bible of the Christian faith. From our first civil compacts and the New England Primer textbook, to the declaration of every state constitution and the declaration of the United States Supreme Court's Trinity decision of 1892, America cries out that its traditions have resulted from an abiding faith in the God of the Holy Bible. Accomplished historian, broadcast producer, and author Dr. Jerry Newcombe demonstrates the unmatched contributions of our Christian heritage to American liberty and prosperity. Likewise, Dr. Newcombe candidly and sensitively treats the very real issues of slavery and treatment of the American Indian. With its extensive documentation, The Book that Made America will soon become the standard bulwark defense of the much maligned but thoroughly true contention that America and its blessings result directly from the centrality of the Bible in our history. Dr. Newcombe has published twenty one books, including fourteen with well- known pastor Dr. D. James Kennedy.
